    Lightbulb C++/CLI and C# board

    There is a C# board, OK. But C++/CLI is nearer to C++ than C#. I have an idea: Instead of making another board for C++/CLI make shared board for C# ant it.

    >>Has this not been discussed before?

    In a fair amount of detail yes:

    CLI threads allowed or not?

    Frankly I couldn't care less since I'm not the one who's going to have to move all
    the threads posted in wrong forums
    No No's:
    fflush (stdin); gets (); void main ();

    My new idea? Do you have a link to it?

    That thread has nothing to do with this case. It says CLI is not C/C++ which is agreed. But we DO HAVE a C# board.

    Let me make it clear:
    C (K&R)
    C++
    C++/CLI which is a C++ with .NET support. (with /clr it will be a .NET that supports C++)
    C# A language based on .NET and has nothing to do with aboves.

    You're missing the point, if you read the thread you will find that that your "new
    idea" was discussed.

    Anyway, there is a general aversion to the Microsoft languages on this board -
    the C# board is very inactive, and although allowing C++/CLI stuff on it would
    probably make it more active, do we need it? The question that should be asked
    is:

    If we were to support C++/CLI on CBoard, would it add to our already excellent
    forum, or detract from it? Will it be helpful and informative, or will questions end
    up going unanswered?

    Hopefully we can answer that question. If C++/CLI was supported, I agree that
    it should be merged with C#, but I voted to disagree with the poll because I
    disagree with supporting the Microsoft languages on this forum. Hopefully that
    clarifies my position.

    No C++/CLI board. It has nothing to do with C++ as it stands now and is more about getting C++ to work with .NET than anything.

    As much as i'd love to see a C++/CLI board, I agree that it has no place on this board. If you have a C++/CLI question, there are plenty of other forums on the internet which are focused on .NET languages.

    EDIT: 3160 total voters?? Did I read that right?

    You under-estimate the dislike of Microsoft, and it's "languages"?

    C++/CLI questions would be best asked on the windows board, just like any other specific question to that operating system, just like win32 / mfc / whatever else. We don't need a whole board for one stinky command line option.

    The C# board should be scrapped. It certainly doesn't get the traffic, and I don't think there's anywhere near enough expertese on the board to support it. It was just the result of some popularity contest, and now those people have moved on.

    This board is in the top-flight when it comes to C and C++, but face it, if you want real C# support then you go find another board which deals specifically with that language, and which has a much higher concentration of experts to help.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
