From official C# docs, it can be useful such as:
* When working on large projects, spreading a class over separate
files enables multiple programmers to work on it at the same time.
* When working with automatically generated source, code can be
added to the class without having to recreate the source file.
Visual Studio uses this approach when it creates Windows Forms,
Web service wrapper code, and so on. You can create code that
uses these classes without having to modify the file created by
* When using source generators to generate additional
functionality in a class.
To split a class definition, use the partial keyword modifier, as
Does anyone thinks C# would benefit of having this keyword? I
think it was mostly implemented to make it easier the Visual
Studio's code generator. Can't think much of it. But give D
doesn't have even multiples inheritances, it's unlikely to be
appreciated but just like to know you all opinions
