C# C# Basics (Retired) Console I/O Start Coding

<SOLVED> System.Console.Write won't print

System.Console.Write doesn't print, even when I save the Program.cs file. The console error reads, 'bash: ncs: command not found.'

Here's my code:

class Program { // This is the first method that is called in the program.
static void Main() { // Prompt the user for minutes exercised. System.Console.Write("Enter how many minutes you exercised: ");

  // Add minutes exercised to total.
  // Display total minutes exercised to the screen. 
  // Request until user quits.    
}

}

Never mind. Realized my (silly) mistake: I should have typed 'mcs Program.cs', not 'ncs Program.cs'.

In the console did you wrote only Program.cs ? If yes, you forgot to put the mcs first. So it should be: mcs Program.cs and then of course mono Program.exe. Hope I helped.

Yep, got it. I made the mistake of putting ncs Program.cs instead of mcs Program.cs.
