    source code that will execute only under Microsoft's Common Language Runtime.


  1. Managed code

    Managed code is a term coined by Microsoft to identify computer program source code that requires and will only execute under the management of a Common Language Runtime virtual machine. This disambiguation is prevalent and only relevant when developing applications that interact with the .NET Framework or other Common Language Runtime implementations, like Mono. Since many older programming languages have been ported to the CLR, the differentiation is needed to identify managed code, especially in a mixed setup. In this context, code that doesn't rely on the CLR is termed unmanaged. Microsoft's Visual C++ development environment can produce both managed code, running under the .NET CLR, or compiled binaries, running directly on the Windows platform with the help of its C++ Runtime Library. Benefits of using managed code include programmer convenience and enhanced security guarantees, depending on the platform. Drawbacks include slower startup speed and generally increased use of system resources on any machine that is executing the code.
