Mono C# 2.0 / 3.0 / 4.0 / 5.0 compiler for CLI 2.0 / 4.0 / 4.5

This is the Mono C# (C-Sharp) 2.0, 3.0, 4.0 and 5.0 compiler, a platform-independent compiler which produces CIL (Common Intermediate Language) binary executables.

This compiler targets the CLI 2.0, 4.0 or 4.5 runtime version.

The mcs compiler supports different C# versions as follows. With C# 2.0 it supports:

 - generics
 - iterators (yield)
 - nullable value types
 - partial types
 - anonymous methods
 - static classes
 - coalesce operator: ??

With C# 3.0 it supports:

 - Language Integrated Query (LINQ)
 - object initializers
 - collection initializers
 - anonymous types
 - local variable type inference
 - implicitly-typed arrays
 - lambda expressions
 - automatic properties
 - extension methods
 - partial methods

With C# 4.0 it supports:

 - dynamic binding (duck typing)
 - named and optional arguments
 - covariant and contravariant generic type parameters

With C# 5.0 (which is the default) it supports:

 - asynchronous methods
 - caller info attributes (as of Mono 3.0 currently not supported!)

Mono is a platform for running and developing applications based on the ECMA/ISO Standards. Mono is an open source effort led by Xamarin. Mono provides a complete CLR (Common Language Runtime) including compiler and runtime, which can produce and execute CIL (Common Intermediate Language) bytecode (aka assemblies), and a class library.
