C# Language Compiling Unsafe Code


For compiling unsafe code, you have to specify the /unsafe command-line switch with command-line compiler.

For example, to compile a program named prog1.cs containing unsafe code, from command line, give the command:

csc /unsafe prog1.cs

If you are using Visual Studio IDE then you need to enable use of unsafe code in the project properties.

To do this:

  • Open project properties by double clicking the properties node in the Solution Explorer.
  • Click on the Build tab.
  • Select the option "Allow unsafe code"
