@ steveo_Bas said:I think it's a neat idea. Even if you've built the exact same Reflactor we already have, it'll have been interesting to build, and you can extend it in various ways.
I expect this to be the overwhelming sentiment. This is one ubiquitous application. My prime object is to dissect the reflection namespace, not to placate developers by saying I have re-invented sliced bread.
I'm already at a disadvantage then, but it will be interesting to see how this all works. Someone like Blowdart always says "look at the amount of 1/2 baked projects on Sourceforge", so I don't expect someone of your experience to get excited, but to offer pragmatic advice/stumbling blocks
Exactly right. Anders Hejlsberg and the C# team have spoken about Metaprogramming for the inevitably forthcoming dynamic features in C/VB[next versions]. I don't really have a clear understanding of how this works in .NET i.e. compile time programming, so hope this will be all but a window. Writing Websites or Smart Client applications gets cumbersome sometimes, and apart from a few specific methods where the code does something interesting, most of it is just boilerplate plumbing, getting this to work with that, over and over again, especially on the bigger projects.
I hope this will give me some respite.
