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.

Sorry for the late reply.
I worked on a C# (MSIL) importer a few years back while I was working in
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
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.

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?
