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
and checkout the 'treecc', 'pnet' and 'pnetlib' modules. For each, in that 
order, run ./ 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 :)
