Hi Johan,

you might take a look at my famix generator for IL code:

At the moment I am using Microsoft CCI but I have also begun to use Roslyn to generate Famix models. 
During the upcoming weeks I will release a new version of the generator and my other tool (also change the license to that everything can be also used for commerical use).

Hi Usman,


Thanks for the reply! In the mean time I have been looking at using Roslyn: the .NET reflection API's, to make a XML dump of the structure of the code. I am almost there so I will keep going this route.



Now I can write a basic class structure with simple call information, and it's only 160 LOC of C# code. But the thing is that parsing is not enough, I also want the semantic analysis that gives type information (argument types, receiver type) and I don’t want to write that myself. Roslyn is supposed to give me that as well so I am investigating that now.

I hope it does.
Now, Mono.Cecil also does name resolution but sometimes I encountered limitations with it hence I would also support that you go for a solution provided by MS.

Hi John,


Sorry for the late reply.


I worked on a C# (MSIL) importer a few years back while I was working in Inria.


This parser was based on Mono project and a library Mono.Cecil that provides API to access MSIL.


The importer I wrote was able to extract the basic information required  to create FAMIX model (Classes, Namespaces, methods, attributes, invocations, accesses, params).

I think it might also have started to extract Generics but that part might not be complete. I didn't rewrite FAME/FAMIX for C# but used a library to transform FAME/FAMIX in Java to C#.

That meant that I could reuse the meta-model + MSE import/export from existing code. 


But I haven't been able to work on it since 6 years now. But if you are interested, you may have a look here at the code here:


One day when I get some time I would like to replace Mono.Cecil with Microsoft's parser that has been opensourced since.

Hi all,

And now it looks like I will need to analyze a part of our own code, written in C#. Is there a parser for C# in Moose and if so, how extensive/solid is it?
