What is IL?

  Shared By: Adaulfo Fischer    Date: Aug 10    Category: .Net Framework    Views: 823

Answer:

IL = Intermediate Language. Also known as MSIL (Microsoft Intermediate Language) or CIL (Common Intermediate Language). All .NET source code (of any language) is compiled to IL during development. The IL is then converted to machine code at the point where the software is installed, or (more commonly) at run-time by a Just-In-Time (JIT) compiler.
