This Technical Report is intended as an aid for understanding the libraries specified in ISO 23271 (ECMA-335), Partition IV: Profiles and Libraries. That Partition includes a machine-readable specification, in XML, of the types that comprise the standard libraries. This Technical Report, in companion files, provides the following items, which help to form a traceable chain from the normative XML specification to a portable, printable representation of its contents:
1. Tool Source Code: A program written in the C# programming language, XML Style-sheet Language (XSL), and using the facilities of the Microsoft® .NET Framework and Microsoft® Office to convert the XML into files viewable using Microsoft® Word. This program, initially provided by Intel Corporation and updated by the CLI editor for this edition, can be modified to produce other views of the XML.
2. .DOC Files: These are the files produced by running the tool mentioned above on the XML from Partition IV. The Ecma task group TC49/TG3 used similar files (produced using earlier versions of this tool run against earlier versions of the XML) as the primary means of reviewing the XML.
3. .PDF Files: These files are produced from the Microsoft® Word files using the Adobe® Acrobat® program. They are viewable on a wide range of computer systems and printable on a range of computer output devices. In most cases, they will appear visually identical regardless of the means used to render them.
Partition IV normatively specifies the format of the XML file. The tool provided here renders all parts of the XML with exceptions for some XML nodes, as described below. For the purpose of description, XML nodes referred to here are specified in XPath notation relative to Type nodes.
• Name (this is redundant and unnecessary since the FullName of the type is rendered)
• FullNameSP (this is redundant and unnecessary since the FullName of the type is rendered)
• TypeExcluded (as above)
• The "value_" field for enums.
