Wow, what a busy week! The F# CTP is out the door, and it's already making reverberations around the blogospphere:
I, unfortunately, am showing up late to the party since I've spent the last week kicking it old-school in Montana. Here's a picture I snapped with my iPhone on Big Mountain in Whitefish.
Anyways, never fear as I've have several blog posts queued up highlighting several parts of the F# CTP - which I'll try to release on a two-a-week schedule. This includes the final installment of "F# in 20 minutes", so stay tuned.
But this first post-CTP post will be devoted to a .fsharpp to .fsproj converter I wrote. While the new F# project system is awesome, it isn’t compatible with the old project system used in the MSR releases. The tool here will convert your old F# projects into the new format.
There are two modes of operation:
Convert a .fsharpp file To convert an existing .fsharpp file, build the project and then run: fsharpp2fsproj.exe <yourproject>.fsharpp
Convert an F# project built via command line For more complex projects (typically built using a command line) you can convert a project based on the full command-line parameters passed to fsc.exe.
For example, if the project was built using: fsc.exe file1.fs file2.fs -R Reference.dll -o MyProgram.exe
Save a file named "args.txt" with text "fsc.exe file1.fs file2.fs -R Reference.dll -o MyProgram.exe" and then run fsharpp2fsproj.exe args.txt
I hope it is of use to you and definitely enjoy the F# CTP!
