About the Book

Drill down into the details of the .NET runtime and IL assembly language with help from one of the language’s designers!

Most books about .NET programming are devoted to high-level languages in RAD environments. But what about the plumbing? This book drills down into the internal structures and operations of the .NET common language runtime and teaches you how to master the IL assembly language (ILAsm), which fully describes these structures and operations. The rule of thumb is that if the runtime can do it, ILAsm must be able to express it. You’ll learn everything you need to know about this low-level language from the developer who designed and implemented the IL Assembler, IL Disassembler, and metadata validation tools. The book is ideal for compiler developers, developers working on multilanguage projects, and anyone else who wants to develop tighter, faster code for the .NET Framework platform. Topics covered include: • Overview of ILAsm and the common language runtime, plus a sample program • Enhancing your code • Managed executable file structure • Metadata tables organization • Modules and assemblies • Namespaces and classes • Primitive types and signatures • Fields and data constants • Methods • IL instructions • Structured exception handling • Events and properties • Custom and security attributes • Managed and unmanaged code interoperation • Multilanguage projects • Appendixes: ILAsm grammar, metadata organization, the IL instruction set, IL Assembler and Disassembler compiler options, and the off-line metadata validation tool CD-ROM FEATURES: • A fully searchable electronic copy of the book • Sample code in IL assembly language
