Someone replied to one of the posts I made on CodeProject asking for more information about the future inclusion of generics in C#. His question sent me to the Microsoft Research page for Gyro, the SSCLI implementation of generics.
Here I am about an hour later and I have the SSCLI compiled with generics support added in. I haven’t done any coding with it yet, but I’m thinking that I could target have Hermes target the SSCLI, which would ease my development by making use of the generics available to it.
The code I have written compiled under the SSCLI + Gyro with only one change, I had to remove the
[assembly:AssemblyKeyName("")] attribute from each project’s AssemblyInfo.cs file.
The best part, I can target the SSCLI by making one minor change in the nant.exe.config file. Life is good when the tools are great.
