Did you know that you can build/modify classes from code? It is actually not so hard, just use the ClassBuild-class.

static void JeDoe_testClassBuild(Args _args)
{
ClassBuild  classBuild;
ClassNode   classNode;
Str         myCode;
;
myCode =
@"
static void Main(Args _args)
{
;
info('Hello World!');
}
";
 
classBuild = new ClassBuild("MyTest", false);
classBuild.addMethod("Main", myCode);
 
classNode = classBuild.classNode();
classNode.AOTcompile();
classNode.AOTrun();
}

The sample above will create a new class MyTest with a ‘Hello World’ Main-method and will actually save compile/save the code in the AOT and then run it. Cool?

Note: The SysDictClass/SysDictMethod-class can also help you creating proper classes and methods. Maybe I’ll blog about this later.
