Mono Tutorial - LXF 88 page 97

Postby hedknox » Sun Jan 28, 2007 1:23 pm

I've been following the Mono tutorial pretty well so far. I had a problem with the Console.Write call but resolved it when I specified System.Console.Write instead since the tutorial moved from using system to using system.IO.........but thats all beside the point :roll:

I'm at the Big Finale stage in the second tutorial LXF 88 page 97. When I replace my existing Main() with the code as specified I get an error at line 21, the last line which is just a closing brace
ie {
The error description is "Expecting `;'(CS1002)" for the file Main.cs

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong here? :? I'm running Fedora Core 6 on a dell laptop which i built specifically for the tutorial and i've installed all the packages required.

Incidentally FC6 is running way slow on this, Ubuntu ran v quick.

If you put all of the code (of the app) here, we might be able to reproduce the errorMessage and give it a try to resolve it.
But at first glance it sounds like a typo.

Heres the code, i'm sure it's just some typo but am brand new to this so it's not obvious to me,.......

// project created on 1/20/2007 at 1:55 AM
using System.IO;

namespace Pipeknot
class Pipeknot
public static void Main(string[] args)
if (args.Length == 0){
string[] files = Directory.GetFiles("/home/rherron","*.txt",
} else {
foreach(string file in cache){
if (file.Contains(args[0])){

Ooops,... I did a quick brace count, added three more in, and guess what, worked

Looks like you fixed your own problem - well done!

As a side note, try having "using System;" and "using System.IO;" in the same script, one per line - that will let you go back to using Console.Write rather than System.Console.Write, as well as having the File and Directory classes.
