This class derives from the System.Runtime.InteropServices.SafeHandle class. It describes the format of an invalid handle. For example, some handles use -1 as an invalid handle value, while others use 0. Further derivations of this class (for example, file or registry handles) can specialize this further. See the SafeFileHandle class for an example of a class that derives from SafeHandleZeroOrMinusOneIsInvalid.

Use the SafeHandleZeroOrMinusOneIsInvalid class whenever you need to safely wrap an unmanaged resource that does not have an existing managed wrapper.
