common language runtime (.NET) (CLR)

Common Language Runtime (CLR) is an interpreter that can interpret the standardized intermediate language Common Intermediate Language( CIL), which is used in . NET, among others.

Part of the Common Language Runtime is the Just in Time Compiler( JIT), which compiles the source code of the assemblies available in Common Intermediate Language into machine codes and with which the operating system works.

The CLR runtime manages the managed code as a virtual machine by requesting and releasing memory and other resources or monitoring file system functions and devices. It also includes an extensive class library, the .NET Framework Class Library( FCL), a security system and garbage collection( GC). .NET has a security concept with mechanisms for authenticating the developer and protecting programs against modification by malware.
