Description Patrik Svensson 2015-08-08 21:28:30 UTC
I noticed that I cannot use using-alias-directives with the Evaluator I got from the Mono.CSharp NuGet package.

In the example below, the third 'evaluator.Run' expression will throw, but only if I've declared a using-alias-directive before it.

using Mono.CSharp;
namespace TestApplication
    public class Program
        public static void Main()
            var evaluator = new Evaluator(
                new CompilerContext(
                    new CompilerSettings(), 
                    new ConsoleReportPrinter()));

            evaluator.Run("using System;");
            evaluator.Run("using MyConsole = System.Console;");
            evaluator.Run("Console.WriteLine(\"Hello World\")"); // Throws

Not sure if this bug report belongs in the correct section or not.
