Mono is a platform for running and developing applications based on the
ECMA/ISO Standards. Mono is an open source effort led by Novell.
Mono provides a complete CLR (Common Language Runtime) including compiler and
runtime, which can produce and execute CIL (Common Intermediate Language)
bytecode (aka assemblies), and a class library.
This package contains the Virtual Machine, JIT (Just-in-Time) and
AOT (Ahead-of-Time) code generator "mono".
"mono" executes applications for the CLI (Common Language Infrastructure).
Mono currently only supports the X86, PowerPC, ARM, SPARC, S/390, AMD64 and
IA64 architectures. Optionally this package configures BINFMT support.
