I'm new to .NET and C++/CLI (though not to programming in general or C++) and recently did some experiments in that environment using VC++ 2010 Express. And there's (at least ) one thing that made me wonder: Whenever I look at the dissasembly window in the debugger while debugging one of my small experimental projects compiled using /clr or even /clr:pure, I see genuine x86 code instead of MSIL (whatever that may look like).
To be honest, I was surprised to see a disassembly window for this kind of project at all. I strongly supposed managed code to be initially compiled to MSIL and then finally JIT-compiled at (or more precisely: just prior to) runtime. Was I really that wrong about that?
This is not really a problem, I'm just primarily curious.
