    MonoDevelop is the Mono C# IDE. Sounds like it should do.

    sudo apt-get install monodevelop

    You mean compiler. It doesn't matter what IDE one uses, but what compiler.

    gmcs is the compiler, see the sticky on how to use it.

    Re: [Beginner] Programming Challenge: 2

    Alright, here is my solution in ruby, which is a language I just started to learn, thanks to why's (poignant) guide to ruby, which is got to be one of the most entertaining programming resources around. It's really a shame that more open source projects don't use ruby, because it's a really powerful, fun, and elegant language. In fact, the reason I chose to learn it over python is that the code looks a hell of a lot more beautiful.

    Anyway, here it is:
    Code:
    #!/usr/bin/ruby
    
    class Person
      @name, @age, @id = nil
      def setName (name)
        if name.kind_of? String and not name.empty? and name[0] != ' '[0] and name.length < 20
          @name = name.rstrip
        else
          @name = nil
        end
      end
      def setAge (age)
        if age.kind_of? Fixnum and age>0
          @age = age
        else
          @age = nil
        end
      end
      def setId (id)
        if id.kind_of? Fixnum and (1..999999) === id
          @id = id
        else
          @id = nil
        end
      end
      def name
        @name
      end
      def id
        @id
      end
      def age
        @age
      end
    end
    
    def xgets
      result = gets.chomp
      if result.upcase == 'EXIT'
        puts "Program terminated"
        exit
      else
        return result
      end
    end
    
    person = Person.new
    while person.name == nil
      print "Name: ";
      person.setName(xgets)
    end
    while person.age == nil
      print "Age: "
      person.setAge(xgets.to_i)
    end
    while person.id == nil
      print "ID: "
      person.setId(xgets.to_i)
    end
    
    print "You are #{ person.name }, "
    print "aged #{ person.age } next year you will be #{ person.age + 1 }, "
    puts "with user id #{ person.id }, the next user is #{ person.id + 1 }."

    Sweet, after looking through this thread I've realized that I'm the only one with a Ruby version! That should earn me some points, right?

    Not sure. I'll wait until you are done if you want. If anyone wants me to wait, let me know as soon as possible (on this thread)

    After finding all that work, I separate them by language, and try to get 10 total. If there are more than 10, I narrow down the language groups (like last time we had a lot of Python and C++, and only a few other languages. I culled the Python and C++ ones to get a top 10, although I think it ended up being only 9)

    Being the only one in a language (and it works) means it won't be bumped unless it is really needed (and since I think we have less submissions this time, it will be unlikely to happen)

    Fixed it so it won't crash when not typing in numbers. No award winner but it was still fun making it Last changes I will be making to it so if someone finds something wrong or a bug I would love to find out but I'll be too busy to re-do any parts
    PHP Code:
    #!/usr/bin/env python
    #revised version, fixed bug that caused program to crash when user did not enter 
    #a number when asked for their Age and Forum ID

    resp1
