    VS 7.1 Linux Source code solution / project file?

    I did a quick google and didn't find much. I was just wondering if anyone has (or knows where to get) a Visual Studio 7.1 (.NET 2003) .sln / .vcproj file for the linux source code - not necessarily the latest.

    I spent, well, a long time getting almost all of it into a solution, in it's own folders and everything, a little while ago, but lost it in "the unfortuneate event" last week-ish.

    ?

    Yes, but wouldn't compiling the Linux kernel under Visual Studio result in an unusable kernel? I mean, VS only compiles for Win32, unless you have special plugins (such as for Xbox). What would be the point, then?

    I think he want to use the source code browsing ability of VS.Net, to quickly find references, do searches etc.

    @ ahluka
    I assume you know the sln/vcproj are just text files (loosely XML based).
    Once you've figured the structure, you can auto create them with a bit of perl magic
    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.

    Thanks Salem I never thought about that. I'm going to do some snooping around today

    kscope would provide great browsing functionality similar to vc's and you'd actually be able to compile it.

    I don't want to be able to compile it. Just browse it and make "ooo" and "aah" noises.
