System.IO.Path.DirectorySeparatorChar should only be an example for a =
Especially in the MacWorld, I don't know what to take care of.

Other examples would be:
- Linux platforms currently need a small shell script for "text.exe" =
called "test" which contains a shell line "mono /some/path/test.exe" to =
start that application from the command line. Windows might start it =
without that script...? Or do we need a .bat file which starts the mono =
application in a similar way?
- Installers (.msi packages on Windows, ??? on Mac, rpm or ??? on Linux)
- Distribution How-Tos for supporting all platforms

Instead of hard-coding the separator char, you can use =
I don't know any guideline, but in general if you are about to do =
