Description - Essential Guide to Managed Extensions for C++ by Artur Laksberg
Managed Extensions for C++ (MC++) are extensions added to the Visual C++ compiler from Microsoft to enable access to the functionality provided by the .NET framework. Visual C++ .NET is the only .NET- targeted language that can generate both native and managed code. It has a rich set of features to write managed applications for the .NET platform and offers facilities to write highly optimized interoperability layers between native and managed code. MC++ offers a unique combination of the power of native C++ code and the flexibility of managed code. "The Definitive Guide for Managed Extensions for C++" is designed to provide a comprehensive guide for programers writing code in managed extensions for C++. The information comes "straight from the horse's mouth" - both authors have been key members of the Visual C++ .NET compiler development team and have spent most of their time implementing the language and educating others about MC++. The book has two parts. Part 1 is about the basics of Managed Extensions for C++. It starts with an introduction to the language followed by an explanation of a "Hello World!" program. It then gives a brief introduction to the .N
ET framework and launches into the various features of MC++ that include managed classes, interfaces, value types, properties, enumerations, pointers, arrays, operators, delegates, attributes, events, and exceptions. All chapters include code samples with detailed explanations. Part 2 of the book is devoted to the transition between managed and unmanaged worlds. The first chapter gives a general introduction to the interoperability between managed and unmanaged code. The following chapters describe the Platform Invoke service, interoperability between COM and .NET, and various data martshaling techniques. The last chapter of Part 2, Managed Wrappers, shows how MC++ can be used
