    C# Editor

    I am looking for a C# Editor, with three requirements. I have browsed google for a while trying to find what I need with little luck.

    1. No installation
    2. Freeware
    3. Will compile from editor (dont even care if it tells me what lines etc cause errors)


    Do not care about intellisense, line highlighting etc...

    Thanks!
    May the compiler be with you.

    >1. No installation
    That's the killer right there. You'll have trouble finding a text editor that can call a compiler and is completely self-contained. Why do you want this feature?
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    I need it for hobby programming in an environment where I cannot install software (work).

    Hobby programming at work? I think you're mostly hosed on this one. You might try giving Microsoft's C# command line compiler a hack, but I'm pretty sure it needs to be installed.
    If I did your homework for you, then you might pass your class without learning how to write a program like this. Then you might graduate and get your degree without learning how to write a program like this. You might become a professional programmer without knowing how to write a program like this. Someday you might work on a project with me without knowing how to write a program like this. Then I would have to do you serious bodily harm. - Jack Klein

    Instead of searching for one that doesn't need installation, search for that you can install into your personal directory. SharpDevelop and MonoDevelop are two free C# IDEs.
    All the buzzt!

    I believe SciTE doesn't require installation and it is free but you still need the .NET platform.
