    (C# == Compiled Language) || (C# == Interpreted Language)


    Hi!

    2 Questions:

    Is C# compiled to byte code like JAVA (which is then interpreted) or is it
    compiled to the machines native code
    (e.g. assembly)?

    How fast is C# relative to C++ and JAVA, respectively?

    Bye,

    Julio ;-)

    Neither.
    It is compiled to an Intermediate Language (sort of a high level machine
    language) for distribution purposes and then translated by the loader to the
    machine's native language.
    Neat huh?

    As for speed, you will have to wait for the final release of the product.
    Microsoft gets mad if we talk benchmarks of Beta code.
