    The command line is commonly refered to as the "DOS-Window" ( which is in fact incorrect, but anyone uses this word ), the black box that pops up when you type "command" ( Win9x ) or "cmd" ( WinNT/2K/XP ) in your startmenu's execute option.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    I tried that, and it said something like: csc is not an internal command or something

    csc is the program that compiles C# files. It is located somewhere in your .NET Framework folders. To run it from everywhere, you need to include this path in your environment %path% variable.

    I would suggest learning a little more about command lines / OS's before learning a language - it might help.
    Do not make direct eye contact with me.
