Hacky fix to the tokenizer and parser.

At least part of the problem is in the ConditionTokenizer and ConditionParser classes.

I've attached a patch that rather hackily adds the tokenizer and parser support. I suspect a proper fix would probably entail merging the Expression and ConditionExpression parsing though.

There is still an issue with the evaluation of the expressions in one of my builds that I haven't had a chance to figure out yet. That build is too big to upload here. If I can get a reproducible example that is small I'll upload it.

What condition syntax are you trying to fix?
Comment 2 jeremy 2014-06-17 10:17:40 UTC
An example syntax that fails:

Condition="$([System.String]::new('%(ReferencePath.Filename)'). StartsWith('AutoMapper.'))"

The embedded property syntax recently added works elsewhere just fine. But the Condition expressions have their own tokenization and parsing on top of the regular expression parsing.

This is a part of the Automapper nuget packages .targets file.
