Tangible Software Solutions, a Canadian based software development and consulting company, has released version 2.5 of its VB.NET to C# conversion utility, Instant C#.
Instant C# converts source code at all levels of implementation and handles code snippet conversion, external assembly references and ASP 2.0 web site conversion, according to Tangible Software Solutions president, Dave Doknjas.
Version 2.5 evaluates complex conditional compilation branches, converts VB 2005 'My' namespace references and compares converted code side-by-side after a project conversion.
"Any tool can add the semi-colons and braces, but the real test is how it handles the tough stuff, and that requires the converter to incorporate reflection, multi-branch parsing, and complex heuristics," he said.
Instant C# is available worldwide and costs US$179 per user. It comes with sample code snippet conversions, help documentation and technical support for one year.
