One another challenging yet simple thing that a newbie can=20
currently help us with:
Try fixing VB.NET grammar rules in mb-parser.jay so that all
current "18 shift/reduce conflicts" and "2 rules never reduced"
errors go away.
Within the mcs/mbas directory there is "y.output" that gets created =
would point you towards the problematic productions.
One can download Paul Vick's, VB.NET language specification from=20

Good to have you onboard.
Allow me to own the pre-processor stuff as I am likely to
be done with it in another couple of days.
As for test cases, one other alternative to what Rafael,=20
suggested is to translate mcs test cases to vb test cases=20
with an eye for any vb nuances.
You can also look at the defects that are open in bugzilla.=20
Once you start working on one of those defects it wouldn't=20
be diffcult to charter your own course through the next=20
series of defects/enhancements.
Fyi, most of the mbas implementations could be borrowed from
the equivalent mcs implementations with some tweaks here
and there. But there are exceptions.

My name is Jo=E3o Paulo Viegas Carneiro,
I'm a Brazilian programmer and I'm happy
to announce that I will be working for the MonoBasic project
as much as I can.
I've been talking to Rafael and he told me that a good beginner
trial is to write as many test as possible*so I want to know if is there
anyone writing test to the compiler?
If the answer is yes, please let me know how can I help.
Otherwise, I will start with the preprocessor directives.
