Managed C++ horror

Posted on:October 10 2008

Currently I'm working a lot in Managed C++ code. Quite a horror. Not the language itself, but the bugs in the compiler and the tools around it. I knew why I stopped supporting Irrlicht.NET :) Probably C++/CLI is better, didn't try it yet.
It was so bad already, I nearly considered rewriting the whole code in C#, which would have taken a few weeks. But now I made it, it works. Phew. You know you have to change something when the success of a build has nothing to do with programming, but more with experience, googling for error-messages and luck.

Well, when I started with C++ that was my learning experience ;)

Is there a reason why you don't use C++/CLI? It's certainly not as nice as C#, but still a lot better than "underscore hell".

The only real reason is history. I started the project when there was no C++/CLI. :)

One question: In what project are you making this effort? (Irrlicht for .NET)?. If it is, what happened with IrrlichtCP?.

what a luck that when irrlicht development was started that C++/CLI did not exist, otherwise irrlicht would be usable only on windows platform

Whatever happened to Irrlicht CP, anyway? I get a wordpress error going to its homepage, and the latest released version appears to be from 2007...

Great. With Irrlicht.NET discontinued and Irrlicht CP discontinued, there is no more .NET binding for Irrlicht anymore except for doing it yourself in aforementioned C++/CLI, then. Just Great.

Tazo, why don't you improve this situation yourself then instead of just complaining and hoping that somebody will do it for you for free?

Because I like complaining too much, what other reason could there be? >_>

Trust me, if I had the time, I *would* do it.
