What is the Microsoft Intermediate Language (MSIL)?

 Posted by BABU_AKKANDI on 4/6/2009 | Category: .NET Framework Interview questions | Views: 3155

MSIL is the Machine independent Code into which .NET Framework programs are compiled. It contains instructions for loading, storing, initializing, and calling methods on objects. Combined with metadata and the common type system, MSIL allows for true cross language integration. Prior to execution, MSIL is converted to machine code via CLR’s Just-in-Time (JIT) compiler.
