Is it possible to execute ASP.Net code without Visual Studio?

Hi,
I am not a newbie to coding... I know XHTML, CSS, XML,JavaScript,PHP and C++.

I am enough familiar with C# to know it's got a c style syntax with if's and elses and foreach loops and so on. I also know also that asp.net in it's higher form of using C#...

What I am interested in knowing is if it's possible to code for asp.net in just a plain text editor as in not using visual studio.

Thanks for your reply.

Hi Pikachoo,

Yes you can. But you need to compile it first. You don't require an IDE for any language (I made flash in notepad once. It was terrible but I just wanted to see if it could be done). There should be a ton of free compilers out there for C#, I can't recall if MS has a free one of their own or not. I'm trying to recall exactly how this works, but I'm about 85% certain the ASP code doesn't need compiling, it should be interpreted.

Its the C# code you'll need to compile. This is why you don't see a whole ton of sites that are in ASP - its an only language (with the exception of mono), and you requires an IIS server to run.

If you are concerned about the size it takes to install the thing then go for Express version of it, and it also available at free of cost nowadays, You can compile it into a DLL or have it interpreted, web projects in .net 2003 were complied into a DLL, though anything 2005+ I don't really see it since it's more of a pain then anything.

But can it be possible in Linux platform, I have Linux installed on my system and dont wanted to switchover to Windows platform for this reason, and i also heard that we cannot execute the C# code for the first time when we run it on the linux platform.
