Adding C# code to a legacy C project

Last Modified: 2010-04-15

I have inherited a 10-15 year old C project.  It compiles and runs fine using MS Dev Env 2003 Version 7.1

I would like to start adding some new functions, er, methods, using C#.  Is it possible to intermix C# code with C ?  Is there some magic Paragma statement that will keep the linker happy?

No there isn't. Your best option may be to package he old 'C' project as a dll and call it from your new C# program.

I don't think you can do that with C#...only Managed C++...right?
