Re: Define the term- CLR for .NET

Common Language Runtime(CLR) is considered as the Soul of .NET framework. You can trust the Common Language Runtime to fetch codes that are written in different programming languages. It is responsible to run the code on Client as well as Server side. The Common Language Runtime is also known to do the object layout handling and also managing the object references. It also keeps a track as to release them when they are no further needed.

Re: Define the term- CLR for .NET

Microsoft describes the Common Language Runtime for .NET as the Execution Engine, as it does the task of executing the code. It has the capability to excute the programs that are built in different languages. The Common Language Runtime accepts code in any intermediate language and then converts it into machine understandable language for execution.
