The following table lists the instruction's hexadecimal and Microsoft Intermediate Language (MSIL) assembly format, along with a brief reference summary:
|FE 14||tail.||Subsequent call terminates current methods|
There is no stack transition behavior defined for this instruction.
tail prefix instruction must immediately precede a Call, Calli, or Callvirt instruction. It indicates that the current method's stack frame should be removed before the call instruction is executed. It also implies that the value returned from the following call is also the value returned by the current method, and the call can therefore be converted into a cross-method jump.
The stack must be empty except for the arguments being transferred by the following call. The instruction following the call instruction must be a ret. Thus the only valid code sequence is
tail. call (or
callvirt). Correct Microsoft Intermediate Language (MSIL) instructions must not branch to the
call instruction, but they may branch to the subsequent Ret.
The current frame cannot be discarded when control is transferred from untrusted code to trusted code, since this would jeopardize code identity security. The .NET Framework security checks can therefore cause the
tail to be ignored, leaving a standard Call instruction. Similarly, in order to allow the exit of a synchronized region to occur after the call returns, the
tail prefix is ignored when used to exit a method that is marked synchronized.
The following Emit method overload can use the
