Archive from 17_9_07 - Microsoft Phoenix Compiler tools

Hi All,
This looks like a fun package for finally building some refactoring tools for Visual C++. This will expose an AST for the code via the Visual C++ front end and the Phoenix API's. Once thats done, there is no longer any need to hand build a C++ parser/lexer and AST representation. It might even be a *gasp* fairly standardised model. Perhaps MS can even get the code DOM in Visual C++ to work properly. We live in hope anyway...

Now all I need is about a year of free time to play with this.... Oh and someone to finance my extravegant lifestyle while I do it... yeah right.
