This chapter introduces the C++/CLI language extensions to C++ and shows you the classic “Hello, World” example in C++/CLI. You’ll learn just enough about the runtime environment that executes your C++/CLI programs to get started with your first program. You’ll also learn some of the features available in that environment, including access to the .NET Framework (or the CLI class libraries), the common type system, and other helpful features such as garbage collection.
