You will be better off compiling vb on WIndows and have
the exes run against mono.

Remenber that the code is evolving and there is bound to be some

Owkey :), I just started so it doesn't matter.

Ok, I will give her a few hugs. I do need a bit of guidance, this is my
first Mono / Linux experience, however, C# is a good friend of me.
I could use especially a little guidance in the development setup.
I currently have Suse 9 with mono, but I couldn't get the build / test
dll thing to work. I tried 'make' in the Microsoft.VisualBasic folder,
that gave an error.
Furthermore, I didn't know exactly how to build the Mainsoft tests on
I'm now using a Windows XP / mono cvs / SharpDevelop combo in the
until I have a decent setup on Suse.
I suggest that I'll implement a couple of methods in the class (using
MainSoft's contribution), diff. it and post it here, so I can get some
feedback on formatting / other mistakes.
A couple of questions I had when I was sniffing around in the sources:
- Why are signatures always using the entire namespace, like
- I see a lot of full names within methods, like Boolean or String, is
just a personal preference?
- Is it the intention to convert all mainsoft tests to unit tests,
creating more tests?
