Thread: Interpreted Language

    Interpreted Language


    With .Net's new paradigm, does this mean that a developer will no longer be
    able to create a non-interpreted program? Will VS.Net support win32 api
    and mfc programming? I know that the availability of more powerful computers
    knocks out the drawback of interpreted languages (i.e. interpreted languages
    are inherently slower), but what about those cases where a programmer wants
    to make his code just a little bit faster?

    Re: Interpreted Language

    Michael,
    Great question! All of .NET will be interpreted. However, you will be able
    to use native APIs or custom C++ DLL APIs by using the "unmanaged" element
    of .NET. It will be very similar to the way you use the API through VB today
    (Declare statements). So yes, you will still be able to write fast code in
    C++ and call it from your .NET components. :-)

    Thanks,
    Jonathan
