What is CLR?

CLR stands for Common Language Runtime. It is one of the most important components of the .Net framework. It provides building blocks for many applications.

An application built using C# gets compiled by its own compiler and is converted into an Intermediate language. This is then targeted to CLR. CLR does various operations like memory management, security checks, assemblies to be loaded and thread management. It provides a secure execution environment for applications.
