The first practical guide to Microsoft's .NET Common Language Runtime!
Compiling for the .NET Common Language Runtime (CLR) is the first book to give software engineers all the details and guidance they need to create full-featured .NET compilers or implement programming languages for the .NET environment. Renowned compiler expert John Gough presents an unprecedented "under the hood" inspection of Microsoft's .NET CLR, illuminating the key concepts underlying Microsoft's new technology and demonstrating exactly how CLR maximizes interoperability across multiple programming languages. The book uses a running example to illustrate its key points(Gough's own open source Gardens Point Component Pascal compiler(which can be used as a basis for sophisticated experimentation.
If you need absolute mastery over the .NET CLR, only one book delivers what you're looking for: Compiling for the .NET Common Language Runtime (CLR) by John Gough.
JOHN GOUGH has been writing compilers for more than 20 years. He is one of the elite group of compiler developers invited by Microsoft to create demonstration compilers for .NET. Gough's Gardens Point Modula-2 compilers were produced for every major computer architecture of the 1990s, and have been widely used worldwide. More recently, he has written compilers for the object-oriented language Component Pascal, targeting the Java Virtual Machine.
