C Sharp REPL example

Previously we showed you a C# example for your Raspberry Pi. We installed a text editor and then the mono development environment. We then created our c sharp example in our text editor , compiled and ran it. This typically is the way you write programs and develop but mono gives you another option called C# REPL, this is a interactive shell that is part of the mono development environment. More details available from http://www.mono-project.com/docs/tools+libraries/tools/repl/

Open up the terminal and type in csharp at the command prompt, you should see something like the following

csharp console
