.NET Core on Linux and MAC RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can you call a .NET Core library from native C++ on Linux and MAC.  I know this is possible through C++/CLI on windows, is there an option on Linux?

  • Hi jnkarate,

    Thank you for posting here.

    C++/CLI depends on the Microsoft’s CL compiler which doesn’t run on Linux and Mac and cannot target those platforms from Windows. It is Windows OS specific technology, so it is not supported on other platforms.

    Here are two references you can refer to:

    1. C++/CLI Support in .Net Core
    2. The Future of C++/CLI and .NET Core 3

    Hope them could be helpful.

    Best Regards,

    Xingyu Zhao
