C#, how to get the stuff to program with it?


Sorry to be completely thick and so on, but I cannot, at all, work out how to get in the stuff needed to program in C#. Cannot even work out what is needed.

Presumably a compiler and something like that unintelligible Windows GUI are needed. This sort of question tends not to get answered perhaps, but could someone vaughly walk me through the steps? Even if I find something that looks a possiblility clicking the download link just gives a list of files with no obvious way of knowing which ones are needed.



Thanks any help.

There is a project call mono that is mostly compatible with MS .Net, and I believe it includes the C# compiler. I haven't used it so I can't give you anything more specific than a project name.

The Mono website has packages for several distributions along with a generic installer for any Linux. Or you can just search your apt/yum/whatever repositories for anything Mono-related. The exact packages you need will depend on what you want to do and how your distribution packages things. At the very least, you'll need the runtime/core, mcs/gmcs (the .NET 1.0 and 2.0 C# compilers), and you'll probably want Monodevelop.

Or install gcc if you don't already have it.

That would be a great suggestion if the OP wanted to program in C, C++, Objective-C, Java, Fortran, or Ada. Doesn't help much with C# though....
