CIL Programming: Under the Hood of .NET

CIL Programming: Under the Hood of .NET


The core language of .NET is the Common Intermediate Language, or CIL. This language is the language of .NET developers can use CIL to do whatever is allowed by the .NET specifications, which is not the case for C# and VB .NET. After reading CIL Programming: Under the Hood of .NET, developers will have a better understanding of the CIL and how to program directly into it. A must-have on every .NET developer’s desk!

Reviews "It takes an inquisitive type of person to want to dig into the guts of the .NET framework and learn how CIL works, but once you have a good understanding of it you can do some amazing things, and this book will help take you there."

Peter Drayton "IMO this book is well suited as an entre to the world of systems programming, .NET-style, for the working programmer who wants to advance (drill down?) to the next level." "With its 325 pages it is absolutely packed with information...Once you have a firm understanding of .NET you will never want to let go of this book." "Jason Bock has put together a well-documented explanatory text on CIL and how to use it. I recommend this book for intermediate to advanced level programmers who really want to know what goes on "Under the Hood of .NET", and any programmer who needs to know the ins and outs of Reflection.Emit to generate types and assemblies."

Sam Gentile "Highly recommended!"
