I'm reading a book on C# and it says while writing code in pure IL is possible (although not as productive) you can use IL to do things that you cannot do in C#...for example...you can create global functions and call them from within IL.

Can someone tell me more about this.  What are the othe practical uses of IL code, beside the example I just gave from the book?

well you can put static members on interfaces as an example ... there are a few things that you cant do in C# but not that many are really "important". VB.NEt can also create these global functions (the module declaration create a function and a static class).

as TAD pointed out in another question another good use is reflecting dynamic classes to avoid branching conditions ....

his example I believe was

for(i=0;i<100000;i++) {
    val += i;
}

vs

i+= 1;
1+=2;
...
i+= 99999;
