Run C++ code in C#.NET

P: n/a
A business associate told me that I should be able to run C++ code in
C#.NET environment because C++ and C# belong to the same family.

He sent me the code below and asked me to run in C#.NET environment. I
got numerous compiling errors because #include stuff don't exist in

Just because C++ has curly braces does not mean the C# compiler understands
its constructs.

Try this to compile:

Only the most trivial example methods will compile in both C# and C++. And
this is looking only at individual methods. Entire applications will never
compile in both. In general, C# will not be able to compile C++ code and C++
will not be able to compile C# code. The same will be true for any pair of
languages you choose.

Your business associate was wrong.

Now, there is a version of C++ for the .NET framework, called C++/CLI, but
there are typical certain changes that need to be made to adapt a generic
C++ program to it.

My business associate later admitted that he used C++ compiler
in .NET.

I guess I don't have to compile the C++ code in C#.NET!
Oct 29 '08 #5

C++ and C# are completely different:

1) To reference to a libray, you need to include the path in C++; but
need to add the .dll as a reference in C# and include that namespace;
2) Syntax of main(), input/output, ... are entirely different.

But I remember when I started to learn C#.NET, someone told me that C#
had close relations to C and C++. Why did they tell me that?
Oct 29 '08 #6

P: n/a
C/C++/C#/Java have the same 'style' of syntax - i.e., curly braces,
semi-colons, same syntax for many constructs, but there are enough
differences that code written in one will not compile with the compiler for
another language.

My business associate insists that he can run C++ functions from C#
code.

Will it be possible to compile C++ code (managed code) into a .dll,
and reference the .dll from C#.NET code, and call C++ code in the
library?

P: n/a
That is a very different question than you started. Yes, you can compile a
dll and call it from c#. http://www.pinvoke.net/ has examples on how to
call windows api dlls. You will do something similar with your associates
dll.

Your associate must be "fun" to work with :(.

Family Tree Mike,

How would this work? The parameter types in C++ methods are different
from the data types in C#. For instance, I have the following
parameter types in C++:

char *
s_object *
long

What types shall I define for the parameters in C# to be passed to the
C++ so that they'll be recognized as types char *, s_object *, and
long?
Nov 4 '08 #10

P: n/a
If your function in C++ is (char * a, s_object * b, long c), then your
declare statement should be (string a, IntPtr b, int c).
