View Thread: IL to C++ compiler - Need advice on implementing context switching

    Surely the same issues apply?

    Not really. Since CLR's JIT outputs assembly code it has knowledge about what's in the registers or about points where it is safe to stop the code for GC because there's no pointer in any register. Since you're generating C++ code you don't have this luxury, you're at the mercy of the compiler.
