hello all 

i m  learning C# with mono. pretty novice. i was trying example 2 on 
[C # tutorial -> Properties ]

briefly speaking it has these files are compiled into a single
compilation but in this tutorial, each file is compiled individually
and its resulting assembly referenced by the next compilation:

abstractshape.cs: The Shape class that contains an abstract Area property. 
shapes.cs: The subclasses of the Shape class. 
shapetest.cs: A test program to display the areas of some
Shape-derived objects.  [ this has the main ]

when compiled with mcs abstractshape.cs shapes.cs shapetest.cs [ mono
c# compiler ] it gives me abstractshape.exe [ basically the
first argument ]

while when compiled with MS Visual C# compiler 7.00.9466  it correcty
gives me shapetest.exe irresptive of the order in which i specify the
files .

i dont know if it is supposed to be this way or is there anything
irregular with mono c# compiler

please enlighten
