C# snippets for yasnippet.el (Emacs snippets)

Some nice person built yasnippet.el, a snippet package for emacs. You type 2 or 3 letters, then hit TAB, and it expands into a snippet.  Like dabbrev, but with forms-based fill-in fields.  It's quickie code generation. Sadly, no C# snippets are included.

Here's my contribution (attached).  There's one for try..catch, foreach, for, using, while, class definition, property definition, singleton, and a couple others.

yasnippet worked like a charm for me.  I did have to make a change in yasnippet.el:

(defvar yas/known-modes
; added csharp so it will show up in the menu!!
'(ruby-mode rst-mode csharp-mode)
"A list of mode which is well known but not part of emacs.")

Also I built a tool to generate the snippet bundle:

;; CreateSnippetBundle.el
;; Useful utility for creating / updating / maintaining snippets ..
;; Complements the yasnippet package.
;; Run this once, and it creates the bundle.el file.
;; do not delete this file!

(require 'yasnippet)
; the starting point

; the bundle file to generate

; the snippet dir from which to generate the bundle
