It provides a C API, so I've bound it to D as a Derelict-based
project, available at https://github.com/kubasz/derelict-mono, and as
a DUB package (http://code.dlang.org/packages/derelict-mono). It
currently wraps the Mono 5.0 API.
There's also a simple example of calling a C# main from D code, and C#
code calling a native function implemented in D.
Cool work! Thanks! Did u use dstep for the translation or manual labor?
I'm guessing no, since these bindings are using function pointers while
DStep will translate function declarations to function declarations in D
as well, not function pointers.
