Compilation errors

I've downloaded the code connecting directly to the source control and the solution don't compile at all. These are the errors:

Error    44    No overload for method 'Start' takes 0 arguments    C:\Work\HttpServer.v1.1\trunk\HttpServer.MVC2\MvcServer.cs    15    13    HttpServer.MVC2
Error    50    The best overloaded method match for 'System.Collections.Generic.List<System.Reflection.MethodBase>.this[int]' has some invalid arguments    C:\Work\HttpServer.v1.1\trunk\HttpServer.MVC2\Controllers\ControllerMapping.cs    69    36    HttpServer.MVC2
Error    51    Argument 1: cannot convert from 'string' to 'int'    C:\Work\HttpServer.v1.1\trunk\HttpServer.MVC2\Controllers\ControllerMapping.cs    69    45    HttpServer.MVC2
Error    52    No overload for method 'Add' takes 2 arguments    C:\Work\HttpServer.v1.1\trunk\HttpServer.MVC2\Controllers\ControllerMapping.cs    78    13    HttpServer.MVC2


The first error is easy to correct as the Start method now requires an int value with the backlog of pending requests to accept.

The second error I just can't resolve easily as if tries to index a List<> of MethodBase with a string. This is is MVC2.Controllers.ControllerMapping:

The list is:        

  private List<MethodBase> _actions = new List<MethodBase>();

and the method is:

        internal IActionResult Invoke(IController instance, string action, object[] arguments)
            return  (IActionResult)_actions[action].Invoke(instance, arguments);

See that action is string so it can't be used to index _action which is List<MethodBase>

The third error occurs because of the second error.

The fourth error shows that you are probably trying to use a Dictionary<string, MethodBase> instead of the List<MethodBase>

Did I get the wrong version from the repository? If not, then why is the repository left in a state that it doesn't compile?

Did you download off the trunk? Because that's a WIP, I downloaded it a while back and was marred with errors like that too. Download the branches.

I'll fix trunk tomorrow. You need to unload the XXXX2 project and everything will compile fine.

Trunk have been fixed.
