Welcome sujith!

There is a IDE for mono on linux called MonoDevelop. It supports
importing from a visual studio .NET project. Or, you can create a
project under it and add files similar to visual studio .net. you can
get it from www.monodevelop.org.

Or there are some alternatives for managing projects.

1. Makefile - the good old make files for compiling projects and keeping
   track of dependencies.

2. NAnt - a build system for .NET. it works with mono. you can get it
   from nant.sourceforge.net.

> Hello all,
> I am a beginner in mono.
> My requirement is like this. I have one.Net project

> .csproj file which contains details about the files

> I downloaded the core and compiler.
> I am able to compile the files as "mcs file1.cs
> file2.cs -r depend1.dll".But since my project is very
> big, I don't want to do like this. I want to create a
> project (equivalent to .csproj) from all my source
> files and say build the project. Please let me know
