[.net] Managed vs. Unmanaged What is the difference

Recommended Posts

Shallow, Managed C++ is a CLR language (aka .NET). When it is compiled, it is compiled into an intermediate language (MSIL (sometimes called CIL)). When the application is run, IL is then JITed and ran.

Unmanaged C++ on the other hand is just "normal" C++. It compiles down to native code instead of IL.

I know this is just a quick and dirty explanation and doesn't go into any details, but I hope it helps clarify your question!
