Hello World without using VS.NET

Has anyone successfully created a Hello World program without using Visual
Studio.NET? If so, what IDE did you use and what namespaces did you import?

Thanks!

Step 1: Write the code

public class Hell

public static void Main(

System.Console. WriteLine("Hell o, World.")

Step 2: Save and compile

(On command line) csc.exe HelloWorld.c

Step 3: Run it

HelloWorld.ex

Hello, World

If you have the .NET SDK installed, you have all the compilers and linkers
and assemblies you need. You can use Notepad or any other text editor to
create and modify the source code, and then use the command line compilers
to create the executables. For instance, key in the following code in
Notepad and save it as Hello.cs. Then from a command window, type
csc Hello.cs
and you'll get Hello.exe. Run Hello.exe and you'll get the hello world
message in a command window.

Here's the code:

using System;

namespace HelloWorldInCSh arp
{
class HelloWorldApp
{
static void Main(string[] args)
{
Console.WriteLi ne("Hello World from C#!");
Console.ReadLin e();
}
}
}

The command line compilers and linkers can be used to build any kind of
application or library assembly. There are many command switches. Try csc /?
to get an idea of what's available.

I haven't personally done this since VS.Net was released, so I don't
remember what you need to set up in order to make this work so easily.
Probably some paths need to be set up in the execution environment for the
command window. Look at the SDK documentation to see what needs to be done
by way of environment variables.

If you don't have the .NET SDK, you can get it from the Microsoft site
(without charge, as I understand it).

Good luck,

Wow. Thanks. By chance would you have this same simple app in VB.NET?

You don't even need the SDK installed - the .NET framework itself comes
with the C# and VB.NET compilers.

Just including the framework directory (eg
C:\WINDOWS\Micr osoft.NET\Frame work\v1.1.4322) on the path is enough.

I use csc all the time - it's much quicker to type in code in a quick
text editor and compile it using csc than it is to wait for VS.NET to
start up, find or create an appropriate solution/project, and then put
the code in, when it comes to quick programs for newsgroup posts, for
instance.
