Generics internals documentation from Microsoft Research


From Andrew Kennedy, one of the primary authors
of the new CLR generics feature in the Whidbey product:


Just to mention that the internals of generics
are detailed in our PDLI’2001 paper, available on the web:




http://research.microsoft.com/projects/clrgen/generics.pdf




(Apologies if you all knew this already). This is a good place to point people
who ask generics-internals questions on newsgroups etc. Although it describes
the prototype implementation, apart from some minor details all of what it says
applies to the product.
