[Mono-list] Where can I get Mono.Options.dll ?

Hello Ryan,  Rolf,

Thanks a lot.  I'll copy the source since that's the official way to do it.

It would be great if '--with-mono-options' was a flag on the configure script.  Even if we had to copy the DLL into the local project to use it.

I tried building using https://github.com/mono/mono/blob/master/mcs/class/Mono.Options/Makefile but that seems to be broken.

make all-local
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/mono-2.11.4/mcs/class/Mono.Options'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `../../class/lib/build/sn.exe', needed by `../../class/lib/net_4_5/Mono.Options.dll'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/mono-2.11.4/mcs/class/Mono.Options'
make: *** [do-all] Error 2

Best regards,

Business Web Development

I've had similar issues trying to find a precompiled library in Mono with no luck.  I tend to just grab the source file from Mono's source repo directly and compile it within my project (as long as my project is written in C#).  You can also compile the file in it's own dll if if helps you achieve your goal.  The file can be located here:

FYI - There is also the command line parser library if you want something precompiled.  Your probably set on Mono.Options but I wanted to just point this out just in case.

Hope this helps,
