  1. Nagy-Egri Máté

    I wanted to ask about C++/WinRT. Could a similar tool in nature to cppwinrt.exe be used by the coreclr team to bring c++ support to .net core? People are eager to author and consume .net core classes written in c++ (though currently people are asking for c++ /cli support, but that is problematic on many ends. A tool similar to C++/WinRT could be a better solution.

    I am particularly interested in consuming the XML implementation of .Net Core from C++ in a cross-platform manner (Win and Linux, MSVC and Clang/GCC), and also to bring numeric libraries (FFT and such) from C++ over to being consumed in PowerShell Core (to provide an alternative to Python).

    Your thoughts?
