What is C#?
C# is an object oriented, type safe and managed language that is compiled by .Net framework to generate Microsoft Intermediate Language.
What are the advantages of C# over C, C++ or Java?
Like C++ and Java, C# is a high-level object-oriented programming language. It is generally more efficient than Java and has useful features such as operator overloading. C# is based on C++ but has several advantages over this older language: it is type-safe, more comprehensively object-oriented, and the syntax has been simplified in several important ways. Most importantly, C# interoperates exceptionally well with other languages on the .NET platform. For this reason, C# is a better choice for building applications for .NET.
How does the XmlSerializer work? What ACL permissions does a process using it require?
The XmlSerializer constructor generates a pair of classes derived from XmlSerializationReader and XmlSerializationWriter by analysis of the classes using reflection.
Temporary C# files are created and compiled into a temporary assembly and then loaded into a process.
The XmlSerializer caches the temporary assemblies on a per-type basis as the code generated like this is expensive. This cached assembly is used after a class is created
Therefore the XmlSerialize requires full permissions on the temporary directory which is a user profile temp directory for windows applications.
Can multiple catch blocks be executed?
