Just a quick followup to say that this is really easy to get up and running. I'm using a Debian box, and had to install dotgnu first. It built from CVS really smoothly. See http://www.southern-storm.com.au/portable_net.html#cvs and checkout the 'treecc', 'pnet' and 'pnetlib' modules. For each, in that order, run ./auto_gen.sh and then do the configure / make check / make install thing. After which the Euler stuff just works. This is my first experience with dotgnu and I'm pretty impressed at how smoothly everything went, particularly given the state of Java for Debian/Linux after all this time. Now I just need to learn csharp... Nice work :)
