As many of you probably already know, .NET apps are not distributed as binary code, but uses a specialized format called 'MSIL' which is an abbreviation for Microsoft Intermediate Language. The idea behind the MSIL format is to provide a machine independent distribution format that promotes the ability to run .NET apps cross platform. This is done by the CLR (the .NET runtime engine), specifically by a 'just in time' compiler (a.k.a. jitter). The CLR hands the MSIL code to the jitter, which in turn compiles the code to its native format. Then, the code in its native format is handed to the CPU for execution
