[Mono-dev] System.CodeDom.Compiler and Debugging

Thanks for the info.
Is there a way for me to use System.Codedom.Compiler and point the
class to the source code of the runtime code that gets compiled. Let's
say that before I compile the code, I save it as a .cs file, and the
application that is compiling the code at runtime knows that the code
is also saved in the .cs file. Can the System.Codedom.Compiler
register this source file as the source code for the class that I am
compiling and thus help the .NET debugger or the Mono debugger to
debug the code that has been written at runtime ?

I hope my question is clear. If not I will explain it again.
