It's hard to answer this without looking at your code, and I haven't used C# and the other things that you write about.

I also don't know what you mean by procedural vs OO. OO still has procedures, but ideally they're small, with many being private or protected. If you're saying that your code looks more like a C free-for-all than C++, my guess is that you haven't yet found a division of responsibilities that yields good encapsulation. And it might just be that there isn't one.

I also don't know what the "input" to your code generator is. When I parse C++ to do static analysis, I also "execute" it using operand and operator stacks, which can emit a sort of stack machine pseudo-code to verify that the code was properly understood. My guess is that it wouldn't be difficult, although lots of work, to turn this into (inefficient) machine code. But this isn't at the same level of abstraction as generating class definitions, like you are.

You say that you can read your code easily, so it doesn't much matter if you think you'd still be able to pick it up again, with modest effort, in a year. If this is the first time you're doing code generation, be patient. Soon you'll probably have an epiphany about how it should be structured, presenting you with the painful choice between leaving it alone and doing a big refactoring!
