Peter gave me the answer I needed. Does anyone have a recommendation for a
"how to learn C#" book or tutorial? I have the O'Reilly "Programming C#"
book, but
I'm sensing it is less than optimal for my learning style... I prefer to
learn by doing,
i.e. write and implement small but fully functional programs that are
useful, and then
develop from there. That book seems more tuned to bringing an experienced
programmer up to speed ASAP, and that's not me.


Next item... mint produces the following error when run against hello.exe
... similar
errors are produced when I run it against other executables. Note: I am
straight out of CVS - what list do I need to be on, what do I need to read
to determine
that something like this is a product of the code I built it from, vs.
something I'm doing
