What are the difference between "modules" and "components"?

Are they the same thing?

Nice,

No, they are not. A component is typically synonymous with a class
(although definitions will vary as to what this class has to conform to in
order to be a component).

As for modules, they contain type definitions, and there can be one or
more modules in an assembly.

Hope this helps.
