After thinking about my response for a bit I want to clarify this.

In C and C++ you don't have true type safety, say you write a DLL that provides a block of memory described as such:

struct DATA {
  int data1;
  int data2;
  char data3;
};
Now I can take your DLL and so long as I have defined a similar looking struct I can access the data within that block of memory easily.

You can't do the same thing in .NET, in .NET to access that same block of memory you have to use the same structure that was defined in the DLL (.NET calls the DLL an assembly).

In most cases this isn't a problem, but you do run into problems if you attempt to do what you could do in C -- f.e. if you define a struct or class for use in your DLL then redefine that struct or class within your application you will not be able to cast between the two freely. The

Hope that makes more sense,

James
