/target:module (Create Module to Add to Assembly)



To not generate an assembly manifest, use the /target:module option. By default, the output file will have an extension of .netmodule.

A file that does not have an assembly manifest cannot be loaded by the .NET Framework common language runtime. However, such a file can be incorporated into the assembly manifest of an assembly by means of /addmodule.

If more than one module is created in a single compilation, internal types in one module will be available to other modules in the compilation. When code in one module references internal types in another module, then both modules must be incorporated into an assembly manifest, by means of /addmodule.

To set this compiler option in the Visual Studio development environment

Creating a module is not supported in the Visual Studio development environment.

To set this compiler option programmatically

See OutputType Property.


Compile in.cs, creating in.netmodule:

csc /target:module in.cs
