Status Update

"Hello, world!" now runs without first having to process the entire transitive closure of classes. It turns out that there is (what I feel) a bug in ModuleBuilder.GetType(string). It can be used to construct array types for types that have not yet been finished, but whenever you do that, it does fire the AppDomain.TypeResolveEvent, which caused me to finish the type (which wouldn't work because it was already in the process of being finished). Fortunately, it's easy to workaround, by setting a flag to ignore the TypeResolveEvent while inside ModuleBuilder.GetType().

Running "Hello, world!" takes slightly less than 2 seconds. So startup performance could be better ;-)

I apologize for the lameness of this, but the comment spam was driving me nuts. In order to be able to post a comment, you need to answer a simple question. Hopefully this question is easy enough not to annoy serious commenters, but hard enough to keep the spammers away.

Anti-Spam Question: What method on java.lang.System returns an object's original hashcode (i.e. the one that would be returned by java.lang.Object.hashCode() if it wasn't overridden)? (case is significant)
