Example text

When I say self-describing I mean that the assembly contains all the necessary information to uniquely identify and describe the assembly. Being able to uniquely identify and describe an assembly is important to ensure that loading and binding of assemblies is performed without conflict and dependencies on other configurable data. By making an assembly self contained, it takes great strides toward eliminating the problem of DLL hell. NET applications. Framework assemblies are good examples of shared assemblies.

Rather, an intermediate language must be translated to native instructions before the processor can execute them. NET application can still be launched in the exact same way as a native application. How is this possible? NET applications and automatically bootstrap the CLR? The answer lies in a file format that has been around since the early days and is understood by Windows: the Portable Executable (PE) file format. Figure 2-3 illustrates, at a high level, the general structure of a PE image file.

00 ................ y . @. The bytes corresponding to the AddressOfEntryPoint are shown in bold and, at a high level, translate to the following: JMP 402000 The big question here is what does 402000 symbolize? The answer is that 0x402000 references another part of the PE image file, namely the import section, which lists all the modules on which the PE file is dependent. At load time, the actual address of the dependent import is fixed and the correct calls can be made. dll 402000 40243C 0 0 Import Address Table Import Name Table time date stamp Index of first forwarder reference 0 _CorExeMain 2.
