Mandreel is a new technology to make C/C++/Objective-C work on platforms don't allow those
ActionScript platforms, among those platforms there is XNA (Windows Phone 7 and Xbox Live
Indie Games) and Web Browers.
Thanks to this, Mandreel becomes a suitable tool to convert tools and games from platforms like
iOS or Android to Windows Phone 7 or Xbox Live Indie Games.
What benefits can you get?
Mandreel is optimum and recommendable in situations where you want to reuse your existing
Xbox Live Indie Games, Web Browsers)
For these cases, using Mandreel you can minimize development costs because you don't have
to rewrite the code base for these new platforms. For example, with Mandreel you automatically
get an exact copy on C# of the original source code without performance penalties and allows to
sync it as many times as you need in the case you need to modify the original source code.
When used for C#, all the generated source code is managed C# and it supports .NET
framework along with .NET compact framework (included on Windows Phone 7 systems).
Silverlight and XNA platforms are supported.
Furthermore, not only you get an automatic C# implementation of the original source but it
allows interoperability between the 2 languages (for example, you can make calls from C# to
C++ and vice versa) thanks to that you get an agile working environment.
How does it work?
Through an installer the developer gets all the needed tools. Once the installation is finished you
are ready to use Mandreel on that machine.
Mandreel works like a standard compiler. For projects or libraries you want to reuse, makefiles
are created and through the make progress you convert the original input files(.c,.cpp..mm) into
C# files or js files.
In order to use those generated C# files, it's enough to create the desired project on Microsoft
Visual Studio (for example a XNA project for Windows Phone 7) and add those files to the
Furthermore, if you don’t have the time or the required team to realize the conversions, and
even so you want to convert an existing C/C++/Obj-C application, the Mandreel development
team also offers an application conversion service with affordable prices due to its technology
