    C# command line FTP server

    • 13 Comments
    I've been working on a command line driven managed FTP server for the past few weekends. Something fun I've been doing on my off-time. Feel free to check it out: http://www.gotdotnet.com/Community/UserSamples/Details.aspx?SampleGuid=0a7606f3-f8ec-4e39...

    FCalls and GC Holes

    • 0 Comments
    A quick heads up, Yun Jin has posted a nice addition to my previous post on adding an FCall to the Rotor source. He goes on to explain a little bit about the GC and GC holes - which is exactly what he works on all day - he's a GC Hole man. Unbelievable...

    Creating delegate types via Reflection.Emit

    • 4 Comments
    There's been a few questions on various newsgroups asking for the code sequence for generating a delegate type at runtime. I've cooked up a bit of code which illustrates the various attribute parameters that you need to pass to the Reflection.Emit builders...

    hello, world... Reflection.Emit style!

    • 13 Comments
    Before I head home, I thought I'd post up your typical “Hello, World” style app in Reflection.Emit . ~20 lines of C# code, not too bad for code generation of a Console.WriteLine. For those who don't know what Reflection.Emit is, or what it...

    Short notes on the Rotor JIT

    • 5 Comments
    I wrote some notes on the Rotor JIT before I started at Microsoft. My intention was to play around and figure out how to replace or extend it, perhaps giving Rotor the ability to spit out processor extension specific code (MMX, 3dNow! etc). I never did...

    Understanding the nuts and bolts of the CLR

    • 5 Comments
    I noticed Andrew Stopford posted a great blog entry about what books are out there for learning the in's and out's of the CLR. Another resource you may want to consider, is the CLR source code itself - Rotor! What better way to understand the nuts and...

    Adding a new managed class to Rotor (that interacts with the EE)

    • 5 Comments
    I haven't actually posted anything technical to this blog yet - so I figured I'd hack together a piece of source (with the internal help of the CLR devs) that illustrates something semi-cool, yet can be extended by those that are interested in continuing...

    The next Rotor rev...

    • 4 Comments
    I figured I'd write a small, somewhat unofficial post about Rotor V2 (Rotor Whidbey). For those that missed the PDC this year, there was a Rotor BoF (Birds of Feather) session in which Brad Abrams talked a little about the next Rotor release. Yes, there...

    Thanksgiving holiday fun

    • 2 Comments
    To an Australian, Thanksgiving holiday seems like a vacation on steroids. I've never seen so many people with smiles on their faces as they desperately reduce food consumption in anticipation for mountainous amounts of turkey. I'll be off to New York...

    Rotor RFP v2.0 is announced - get yours while it lasts!

    • 4 Comments
    It's been a while since I've emitted, for reasons other than sheer laziness. We're currently in the planning stages for the next release of Rotor, based on the Whidbey sources. I hope to produce some entries illustrating what we're going to be doing...
