README

This is my custom fork of Mono.Cxxi that aims to replace the GCC-XML parser
with a Clang-based one, and remove all the C++-ABI specific code for things
like object layout and name mangling from the runtime library while replacing
it with metadata generated by Clang (it already provides all the needed info).

This is a work-in-progress and is currently unusable for real work.

Inlining
--------

Inline methods are mapped to a shared library name libFoo-inline.so where libFoo.so is the
original shared library we are binding to. This library should be compiled using gcc's 
-fkeep-inline-functions option:

g++ `pkg-config --cflags QtCore QtGui` --shared -fPIC -o libQtGui-inline.so -fkeep-inline-functions qt-gui.cpp `pkg-config --libs QtCore QtGui`
