Join Ted Neward for an in-depth discussion in this video Assemblies and modules, part of CLR Assemblies Deployment for .NET Developers.
- [Instructor] One of the things you may have noticed is down here towards the bottom there is this .module directive. It turns out that assemblies are made up of modules and can, in fact, be made up of more than one module. This was something that we thought would be important when .NET first shipped but as it turns out, we really don't care as much as we used to. So for the most part, assemblies and modules will be entirely on a one-to-one basis and 99 times out of 100, that's the fullest extent that you need to know about modules.
There is the ability to create multi module assemblies but that's really something that's relegated to history at this point and it's a useful question to ask during interviews and that's about it.
