Coming Thursday (December 9th) we will have an online session in which we will try to explain what X# compiler does with your code. We will discuss several topics, such as

  • Strong Typed versus weakly typed functions / methods
  • Different calling conventions (Clipper - Strict - Pascal - Thiscall)
  • Function / method overloading
  • Values types versus reference types
  • Parameters by value and parameters by reference
  • Early bound code versus late bound code
  • Virtual instance methods versus non virtual methods

The session will mostly use code from the XSharp Runtime as example and will look at that code from the Xbase side but will also look at the produced IL code using the ILSpy decompiler. We will also discuss 'ease of use' versus 'best performance'.

Update We have re-recorded the session. Is is now available in our youtube channel
