[Mono-list] System.PlatformID Issues
Wed, 10 Jul 2002 22:34:26 +0200
I like the idea of mono.dll, but I think there should be a way to tell if
your application is dependent on mono or can be run on plain .NET.
Question to compiler guys: is it possible to somehow annotate (attributes ?)
mono's additions to Microsoft provided classes (I mean new enum values, new
public methods, etc). Then it would be cool if the compiler could warn about
non-microsoft extensions used in the source code.
Is it possible to do so ? I think one cannot apply attributes to enum values
but to the type as a whole, so this can be a problem...
