Public Interface ICodeCompiler
In the .NET Framework versions 1.0 and 1.1, code providers consist of implementations of CodeDomProvider, ICodeGenerator, ICodeParser, and ICodeCompiler. In the .NET Framework 2.0, the CreateGenerator, CreateParser, and CreateCompiler methods are obsolete, and the methods of ICodeGenerator and ICodeCompiler are directly available in the CodeDomProvider class. You should override those methods in your code provider implementation and not call the base methods.
The ICodeCompiler interface can be implemented for a specific compiler to enable developers to programmatically compile assemblies from Code Document Object Model (CodeDOM) compile units, strings containing source code, or source code files.
The ICodeCompiler interface provides the capability to invoke compilation with specified parameters at runtime and access information related to compilation after compilation occurs, including the result code, and any errors or warnings the compiler returns. Each compile method accepts a CompilerParameters object that indicates settings for the compiler, and returns a CompilerResults object that indicates the results of the compilation.
Compiler developers should provide an implementation of this interface to support dynamic compilation. CodeDomProvider implementers should also consider implementing this interface to provide programmatic compilation capability for the language that they are providing CodeDom support for.
for full trust for the immediate caller. This interface cannot be used by partially trusted code.
for full trust for inheritors. Classes that implement this interface cannot be inherited by partially trusted code.
