NET CLR (Common Language Runtime)- April 1, 2009 at 17:30 PM by Rajmeet Ghai

What is a CLR (Common Language Runtime)?

Often there is a need for different languages to communicate with each other at run time. For e.g. A class may be written in one language and its derived class may be written in a different language. Common Language Runtime is a run time environment for .NET. These different languages are integrated and can communicate easily because language compilers and tools that target the runtime use a common type system defined by the runtime.

Features or Functionalities offered by CLR:-

  • Garbage collection for managing life of objects.
  • Enables Cross language inheritance as explained in example above.
  • Syntax and keywords similar to C and C++
