I've also tried something similer, but couldn't make it work. I would |
very much like to be able to create a complex method body containing
sub-expressions from several places in the original DSL text. But I
think too much is happening in the linking process to make it easy to do
by manually creating Xbase objects. It would be great to have an
XbaseExpressionBuilder with toXExpression methods (toIf, toReturn,
toBlock, ...) that make this possible.
There's to much happening during linking
