[Mono-dev] [PATCH] Generate Consts.vb from Consts.cs (new patch)

I attached a cs2vb.cs that is functionally equivalent to cs2vb.pl. (I
created this just for fun to show how much easier it is in Perl.:)
I anybody has ideas how to compile a C# program before compiling anything
else help is welcome otherwise I think the previously attached cs2vb.pl is
the best solution.

Consts.cs is for constants. If we need code it probably will be (and should
be) put to separate code files. Converting code from one language to another
as the part of the build process is a bad idea anyway. Even if you convert
it programatically you have to look at the result that everyting is fine. So
if we need the same code both in C# and VB there should be two source files
Consts.cs is a special case because it only contains constants. It's more
like a configuration file than a code file.

But perhaps tomorrow you need constans and X; and in one month you see
that you need Y too, and then Z... And you could have finished it
earlier reusing code..? :)

Sorry for not clarifying, SD: SharpDevelop.
