CppSharp is a collection of libraries for working with C++ code from .NET.

It has multiple use cases, from parsing C++ code to automatically generating .NET bindings for wrapping C/C++ native code allowing interoperability with managed languages like C#.

This can be used to consume an existing native library in your managed code or add scripting support to a native codebase.

Build Status
