           Summary: csharp should be usable as a command interpreter
    Classification: Mono
           Product: Mono: Compilers
           Version: SVN
          Platform: x86-64
        OS/Version: openSUSE 11.1
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P5 - None
         Component: C#
        AssignedTo: mono-bugs at lists.ximian.com

It would be nice if 'csharp' could be used to write scripts, so that we could
write executable script files:

    #!/usr/bin/env csharp
    Console.WriteLine ("Hello, world!");

Alas, this fails:

    {interactive}(1,22): error CS1024: Wrong preprocessor directive

So the only way to write a script is to write *two* scripts, the actual script
(above, minus the #!/usr/bin/env line) and a "helper" script:

    csharp < the-real-script-to-execute
