Methods
  NameDescription

Protected methodFinalize
Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.

Public methodGetEntries
Creates a copy of the internal thread list associated with this ACL. You may freely modify it without affecting the internal entries.
Public methodGetHashCode
Serves as a hash function for a particular type.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetType

(Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseClone
Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.

Public methodSetExclusiveACL
Sets an exclusive ACL. This means all threads that are enumerated through InACL are NOT intercepted while all others are. Of course this will overwrite the existing ACL.
Public methodSetInclusiveACL

Remarks
Refer to the official guide to learn more about why thread ACLs are useful. They can be used to exclude/include dedicated threads from interception or to dynamically apply different kind of hooks to different threads. Even if you could do this in managed code, it is not that easy to implement and also EasyHook evaluates those ACLs in unmanaged code. So if any thread is not intercepted, it will never enter the manged environment what will speed up things about orders of magnitudes.
