How to convert C# source to CodeDom graph?

I'm playing with CodeDOM and CSharpCodeProvi der. I've found the following

CodeDOM -> Assembly
C# Source code -> Assembly

I miss the C# Source code -> CodeDOM only. Is it there? Or it's hidden under
the hood?

As I know in VS2003 method in CSharpCodeDomPr ovider.CreatePa rser is not
overridden thus it is always call base implementation that returns
In VS2005 CSharpCodeDomPr ovider.CreatePa rser is marked as obsolette but
CSharpCodeDomPr ovider.Parse method is not implemented

That means, I have to write C# parser myself?
Are there free available implementations already?

Unless you manage to find an existing implementatatio n, yes. The problem
with a "CSharpToCodeDo m" parser is the vastly different expression space of
C# and CodeDom. Some C# expressions are nearly impossible to recreate in
CodeDom. An example:

obj as IDisposable

A possible equivalent would be
obj is IDisposable ? (IDisposable)ob j : (IDisposable)nu ll;

Of course, the expression (boolean ? expr1 : expr2) also has no equivalent.

You'd have to introduce a method.

internal T As<T>(object value)
if (value != null &&
typeof(T).IsAss ignableFrom(val ue.GetType())
return (T)value;
return null;

internal T Or<T>(bool condition,
T trueExpression, T falseExpression )
if (condition)
return trueExpression;
return falseExpression ;
// equivalent to: obj as IDisposable
As<IDisposable> (obj)

// equivalent to: boolean ? expr1 : expr2
Or(boolean, expr1, expr2)

I've no idea how to replicate the checked statement. Other expressions are
just cumbersome to replicate, e.g. is, foreach, using, lock.


PS: I've found one implementation of ICodeParser:
Microsoft.Visua lStudio.Designe r.CodeDom.VsCod eDomParser in the assembly
Microsoft.Visua lStudio. My guess is that the Form Designer uses that.

Hi, I havent been able to find any documentation about @ in the CodeDom context. The problem is when generating C# code from CodeDom it will associate a @-tag with all C# specific types. Why?

Hello, does anybody know if there is a existing tool that can convert valid C# Code to a XML structure? I tried to parse a C# program to analyze the structure of the existing program code, but it's really, really very complicated. So, if there would be a existing tool that converts the C# file to XML it should be easier to parse then the XML file. Because the CreateParser method of the CodeDomProvider class does not work, I now try to...

Is there any tool to convert source code, e.g. of a C# method, to opcodes being used in System.Reflection.Emit? It's a real pain to do that manually, especially for big pieces of code. public static int Rule001() { return 1; } ==> ILGenerator methodIL = ruleMethod.GetILGenerator(); methodIL.Emit(OpCodes.Ldc_I4, 1); methodIL.Emit(OpCodes.Ret) Thanks.
