All about CLR

This code blog gives an overview on what exactly CLR does

CLR - Common Language Runtime

It is the runtime that converts a MSIL code into the host machine language code. It is the execution engine for .NET Framework applications. It provides a number of services, including:

·         Code management (loading and execution)

·         Memory Management

·         Thread Management

·         Conversion of IL to native code.

·         Access to metadata (enhanced type information)

·         Managing memory for managed objects (Garbage collection)

·         Enforcement of code access security ( Security Management)

·         Exception handling, including cross-language exceptions

·         Interoperation btw managed code, COM objects, and pre-existing DLL's (unmanaged code and data)

·         Support for developer services (profiling, debugging, and so on).

·         Type safety.
