And sometime under Mac OS X

In *nix world .NET is called Mono and this awesome open source development platform works excellently under Mac OS X Lion.

Another operating system gains Command Line Parser Library. That's good...

CommandLine.dll now developed under Ubuntu Linux/Mono

Because of laziness I'm still carrying out many  NET projects. with Visual Studio Express on Windows platform.

Recently I'm developing my open source parser for the command line using Mono under Ubuntu Linux operating system.

MonoDevelop has not forced me to change project format (I keeped my .sln e .csproj files) and it worked just as before, or I would say better. Integration with NUnit is awesome! Religion wars aside, who more really need Windows?

Good coding!

Command Line Parser Library meets Physics

In a prototype stage project, I was prompted to write a software (using .NET/C#) able to publish the data read from a mass spectrometer through a TCP/IP socket.

One of the first problems that the design presented was to run the application in a special mode in order to be tested. The use of a configuration file was not sufficient, I thought I could use the command line parser that I wrote and published with open source license.

The use of this library has prevented me from changing the configuration file every time I need to run the application in a different mode with different parameters.
