This is Mono.

1. Compilation and Installation
===============================

   a. Build Requirements
   ---------------------

	To build Mono, you will need the following components:

		* pkg-config

		  Available from: http://www.freedesktop.org/Software/pkgconfig

		* glib 2.0

		  Available from: http://www.gtk.org/

	Optional dependencies:

	 	* ICU library

		  http://oss.software.ibm.com/icu/index.html

		  You will need this one to get complete support for the international
		  features of the .NET Framework.

		* Cairo and libgdiplus

		  If you want to get support for System.Drawing, you will need to get
		  both Libgdiplus and Cairo.

    b. Building the Software
    ------------------------
  	
	If you obtained this package as an officially released tarball,
	this is very simple, use configure and make:

		./configure --prefix=/usr/local
		make
		make install

	If you obtained this as a snapshot, you will need an existing
	Mono installation.  To upgrade your installation, unpack both
	mono and mcs:

		tar xzf mcs-XXXX.tar.gz
		tar xzf mono-XXXX.tar.gz
		cd mono-XXXX
		./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr/local
		make fullbuild

    c. Upgrade from CVS
    -------------------

	If you are upgrading from CVS you will need an existing Mono installation.
	First verify that you have a working installation:

		echo 'class X { static void Main () { System.Console.Write("OK");}'}' > x.cs

	Compile:

		mcs x.cs

	And run:

		mono x.exe

	If you get the output `OK' and no errors, you are ready to start your CVS upgrade.

	First, make sure that you have up-to-date mcs and mono sources:

		cvs co mono mcs

	Then, go into the mono directory, and configure:

		cd mono
		./autogen --prefix=/usr/local

	Then compile using the special target `fullbuild':

		make fullbuild

	This step will compile and install at the same time.

	Failure to follow these steps will result in a broken installation. 


2. Using Mono
=============

	Once you have installed the software, you can run a few programs:

	* runtime engine

		mono program.exe
	  or
		mint program.exe

	* C# compiler

		mcs program.cs

	* CIL Disassembler

		monodis program.exe

	See the man pages for mono(1), mint(1), monodis(1) and mcs(2)
	for further details.
