Mono C# 2.0 and C# 3.0 compiler for CLI 2.0

This is the Mono C# (C-Sharp) 2.0 and C# 3.0 compiler, a platform-independent compiler which produces CIL (Common Intermediate Language) binary executables. The gmcs compiler supports two different featuresets (C# versions).

With C# 2.0 (which is the default) 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

This compiler targets the CLI 2.0 runtime version.

Mono is a platform for running and developing applications based on the ECMA/ISO Standards. Mono is an open source effort led by Novell. 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.
