But how can I generate a dll file for linux ? 
I'm running my application (exe file) that was compiled on .net  in a linux
the code in the exe file refers to functions in a dll file I compiled in
visual studio on windows.
my question is : Can I generate a dll file compiled on linux ? that will
expose the same api and  run my exe file ? will it do the job ?

thanks in advance.
