I have to do so much processing to the codedom just to get VB to choke it down.

Why? The language is STUPID. That's why. There's no more succinct and accurate way to put it.

The grammar is stupid.
The runtime is stupid.
The language overall, is stupid.

You have two different equality operators you have to use depending on whether you're comparing reference types or value types. Because of that I have to visit every damned == and != in the tree, do type resolution on both sides of the expression (slow) and then based on that determine whether I should say "=" or "is"

Stupid.

You have to explicitly name your public implementation types for a method. So if i want to implement IEnumerator<t>.Current I have to also have Implements IEnumerable(of T)

This means for every public method you declare i have to go through all the base types of its declaring class, resolving each one (slow) to see if it matches the method signature (slow) of the declared method, so i can add Implements.

Stupid.

And don't get me started on the bugs in the VB codedom

It has taken me 2 hours just to fix all that crap

Mad | :mad: Angry honey. Mad | :mad:

When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
