Multiple Roslyn based tools (all running Stand-Alone outside VisualStudio)

Over the past months I have been using Rolsyn in a number of scenarios, creating in the process multiple O2 Platform tools which might be useful to new Roslyn users.

Here are the stand alone exes, all about 9Mb since they contain the Roslyn dlls and the O2 REPL Script environment as embedded resources.

The titles of these tools should give a good clue on what they do, but if you want me to expand on them (or how the script works), just add a comment to this post with your request/questions.

Note that you can run all these scripts using the latest version of the O2 Platform (just search for 'Roslyn' scripts).

If you are trying to get your head around Roslyn, the best one to try is the first one (PoC - Roslyn C# ScriptEngine Execute v1.0.exe) which is a nice REPL environment. Here is a post I wrote a while back that shows this tool in action: Video: Using O2's Roslyn-based C# REPL Script environment
