CallConvCdecl Class


Indicates that a method should use the Cdecl calling convention.

Namespace:   System.Runtime.CompilerServices
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)


public class CallConvCdecl


Initializes a new instance of the CallConvCdecl class.


Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)


Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)


Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)


Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)


Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

The caller cleans the stack. This enables calling functions with varargs.

This class is used only as a custom modifier of the metadata signature of a method.

The classes in System.Runtime.CompilerServices are for compiler writers' use only.

Compilers emit custom modifiers within metadata to change the way that the just-in-time (JIT) compiler handles values when the default behavior is not appropriate. When the JIT compiler encounters a custom modifier, it handles the value in the way that the modifier specifies. Compilers can apply custom modifiers to methods, parameters, and return values. The JIT compiler must respond to required modifiers but can ignore optional modifiers. A C++ compiler could emit a custom modifier to describe how a byte should be treated in cases where the JIT compiler treats bytes in a manner that is not compatible with C++ by default.

You can emit custom modifiers into metadata using one of the following techniques:

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
