Hi Rolf,

Thanks for your reply and I am sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

Actually, I want to play around with the mono-basic source code to see if I
can get it to compile so that I can learn more about how it works.

I would like to get a pre-compiled version of mono vbnc to see if I can
compile the sources after which I would like work with the code a bit and
see if I can improve it some as it would make a good scripting language for
general purposes as well and would like to see if it can be made into a
standalone version.

Mostly this is an initial learning exercise.  Can you please tell me what
was the last Mono version that had this functional runtime and compiler
working so that I might be able to download that older version to get the
pre-compiled vbnc and runtime out?

Any information that you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
