    .NET Framework CLR: What is the Common Language Infrastructure?

    Q: What is the Common Language Infrastructure?

    A: The Common Language Infrastructure (CLI) standard defines the characteristics of a run-time environment that supports the development of portable applications written in multiple programming languages. Microsoft's .NET Framework and the Mono project are based upon this infrastructure.


    • Where is the CLI standardized?

      So far, CLI is a standard under ECMA. The ECMA Standard (ECMA-335) can be dowloaded.
