Introducing Intermediate Language

  • Simon Robinson


Intermediate Language (IL)—which is also known as Common Intermediate Language (CIL) and as Microsoft Intermediate Language (MSIL)—lies at the core of .NET. Whatever language you use to write your source code in, it will, if it’s to run under the auspices of the .NET Framework, end up as IL. So if you want to understand at an advanced level how .NET works, then knowing a bit about IL is a huge advantage.
