Standard ECMA-334
C# Language Specification

4th edition (June 2006)

This International Standard specifies the form and establishes the interpretation of programs written in the C# programming language.

It specifies:
  • The representation of C# programs;
  • The syntax and constraints of the C# language;
  • The semantic rules for interpreting C# programs;
  • The restrictions and limits imposed by a conforming implementation of C#.

This International Standard does not specify:

  • The mechanism by which C# programs are transformed for use by a data-processing system;
  • The mechanism by which C# applications are invoked for use by a data-processing system;
  • The mechanism by which input data are transformed for use by a C# application;
  • The mechanism by which output data are transformed after being produced by a C# application;
  • The size or complexity of a program and its data that will exceed the capacity of any specific data-processing system or the capacity of a particular processor;
  • All minimal requirements of a data-processing system that is capable of supporting a conforming implementation.
