Assembling Intermediate Language Source Code
This section provides a tutorial example on how to use the .NET Intermediate Language assembler to assemble IL source code into bytecode and stored in a PE file.
The next thing we want to know is how to compile an IL (Intermediate Language) source code to bytecode. To do this we need to use the .NET IL Assembler located at "C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\ilasm.exe".
1. Open a command window and run "ilasm.exe" with "HelloCLR_dis.il":
C:\herong>\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\ilasm.exe HelloCLR_dis.il Microsoft (R) .NET Framework IL Assembler. Version 2.0.50727.3053 Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved. Assembling 'HelloCLR_dis.il' to EXE --> 'HelloCLR_dis.exe' Source file is UTF-8 Assembled method HelloCLR::Main Assembled method HelloCLR::.ctor Creating PE file Emitting classes: Class 1: HelloCLR Emitting fields and methods: Global Class 1 Methods: 2; Emitting events and properties: Global Class 1 Writing PE file Operation completed successfully
2. Run the new CLR based PE file "HelloCLR_dis.exe" generated by the .NET IL Assembler:
C:\herong>HelloCLR_dis.exe Hello CLR 2.0.50727.3615!
Congratulations. We have successfully assembled an Intermediate Language source code to a bytecode and executed with .NET CLR 2.0!
