By Serge Lidin

Specialist .NET 2.0 IL Assember drills down into the inner constructions and operations of the .NET universal language runtime and teaches you ways to grasp the IL meeting language, ILAsm. (The rule of thumb is if the runtime can do it, ILAsm has to be capable of exhibit it.) This booklet is perfect in case you are a compiler and power developer, a developer engaged on multilanguage .NET tasks, or when you simply are looking to improve tighter, quicker code for .NET Framework. * This finished booklet offers a spectrum of data, from IL Assembler and Disassembler to metadata constructions and exception dealing with. * this can be the second one variation of a profitable and well-respected .NET 1.1 booklet. * contains specific, hard-to-find details at the APIs uncovered through the .NET 2.0 runtime. * this is often the one definitive consultant to MSIL on .NET 2.0.Topics comprise controlled executable dossier constitution, metadata desk constitution, Microsoft IL directions, based exception dealing with, controlled and unmanaged code interoperation, executable dossier new release, and metadata manipulation API uncovered by means of the typical language runtime.

Or { … } declares a namespace. A namespace does not represent a separate metadata item. Rather, a namespace is a common prefix of the full names of all the classes declared within the scope of the namespace declaration. Object { ... } defines a metadata item named Type Definition (TypeDef). Each class, structure, or enumeration defined in the current module is described by a respective TypeDef record in the metadata. The name of the class is Even. Even. You could forgo the namespace declaration and just declare the class by its full name; it would not make any difference.

NET Framework classes. dll assembly contains declarations of all the base classes from which all other classes are derived.

Because arrays are subject to garbage collection, they are not allowed as types of mapped fields. Using value types as placeholders is popular with managed C/C++ compilers because of the need to store and address numerous ANSI string constants. NET compilers, which deal mostly with Unicode strings, are less enthusiastic about this technique because they can directly use the common language runtime string constants, which are stored in metadata in Unicode format. dll" cdecl) vararg int32 sscanf(string, int8*) cil managed { } declares an unmanaged method, to be called from managed code.
