Sorry Miguel but it is possible, maybe you misunderstood me..
System.Text.RegularExpression.Regex as a methode called Compile to
assembly ( not implemented yet in Mono , we will do it ) which can save
the compiled regex into an assembly in memory. Then you can save it to
disk with System.Reflection classes . I dont have the code but Eric had
done a small test program which produce an DLL containing an compiled
regex when runned on .NET.
The regex in the dll is a class which extend
System.Text.RegularExpression.Regex with a default constructor so the
class represent always the same regex and you can save on compile time (
I hope ! )
We eventually try to implement CompileToAssembly.
