The Most Comprehensive Converter
Converts all versions of C# code
Numerous conversion and formatting options
Options are available for modern C++ output (C++11, C++14, and C++17)
Excellent conversions of delegates and events from C# to C++
Accurate conversions of operator overloading from C# to C++
Evaluates all referenced assemblies and .NET projects in order to resolve external references more completely
Accurate even with poorly formatted C# code
Note: "unsafe" code blocks and types are not converted.
Q: Are entire projects converted?
You can select C# projects or folders to convert.
All ".cs" files within that project or folder will be converted and
written as either combined declaration/implementation header files or as
traditionally separated .h/.cpp files to the directory you specify.
However, C# to C++ Converter does not construct the new C++ project file
(e.g., the .vcxproj file in Visual Studio). This is due to the
lack of one-to-one correspondence between C# project types and
formats and C++ project types and formats.
Q: Are C# events converted?
Yes - try out our Free Edition to see the conversion
details. C# to C++ Converter substitutes a wrapper type for the
event delegate type. This type maintains collections of 'listeners' with methods
to add or remove listeners.
Q: Are C# delegates converted?
Yes - try out our Free Edition to see the conversion details.
C# to C++ Converter converts C# delegates to function pointers using std::function.
Q: Is the original C# code altered in any way?
Your existing code is left completely intact. The new
C++ files are written to the new location that you specify.
Q: What is the conversion accuracy?
Our accuracy is the highest in the industry,
but there will be significant adjustments required for all but the simplest
conversions. There are no direct equivalents in C++ for some aspects of C#.
Read the rest of the FAQ to get an idea of a few things that are not converted.
C# to C++ Converter is intended to reduce the amount of work you'll have to do
to convert code to C++, but it is just the first step.
Q: What are the most common manual adjustments?
"unsafe" code blocks and types are not converted.
C# to C++ Converter converts
only some of the .NET Framework references to native C++ equivalents. You will
need to adjust most of these references yourself. The converter offers options
to use your own custom replacements.
C# to C++ Converter
cannot ensure proper deallocation of pointer variables. In some
cases, a call to the delete operator is made, but in general
complete memory deallocation is not included in the conversion. However,
the converter contains options for converting to smart pointers.
C# to C++ Converter does not
convert C# events of delegate types that are not defined in the converted
C# to C++ Converter comments
out attributes since there is no direct native C++ equivalent to .NET attributes.
There will be occasional qualifier symbol
adjustments required. For example, it is possible that
the converter fails to determine whether a particular C# dot
operator should be replaced by a C++ arrow, double colon, or
dot. If type analysis fails to determine the equivalent,
heuristics are used to determine the most probable equivalent.
C# to C++ Converter cannot
convert 'finally' clauses since there is no acceptable native C++ equivalent.
Since the converter does not map to a
particular C++ project type, the C# 'Main' method is left in
it's original location and converted literally. Depending
on the C++ project type, you will need to adjust the location
and structure of the main method.
Universal Windows Platform apps (formerly 'Metro',
'WinRT', or 'Windows Store' apps) are converted, but the converter cannot
discover type information which is inside .winmd files. There are a couple of
possible work-arounds, but they will not work consistently for
all users. This means that there will be more manual adjustments required
for Universal app conversions.
