That thread has lots of useful information actually but I might
have confused you. We use Mono/C# to make addins don't we?
I like to go a bit deeper to C/C++/ObjC level in MacOSX.

What I was asking in my first email was something mentioned
in this page:


at the end it says "The *educational *way is an interesting one...".

I was looking for an "educational" project and so my question
was if you could show me a road map to get started on something
like that.

I am interested in "a compiler for a new language" but
"Mono VM extensions in C" or
"improving Mono performance" are also very educational...

Let me put it this way: How did you write C# itself before it existed ?
That's what I like to learn.

I guess my source of confusion is that MonoDevelop is written
entirely or mostly in C# ? Is that right ?
