Hi everyone,

Does anyone know of a free compiler for F# that I can install easily on my iMac? The computer didn't tell me what went wrong when I last tried to install one. So I had no idea how to solve the problem.

Thanks.

Bill

I think you want Mono with the F# MonoDevelop plugin.

Yep. Just to add to this, you use the official Microsoft F# compiler download. There is no need for a Mac specific version as Mono handles everything.

Thanks guys. I've installed MonoDevelop, but I'm confused about both where to get the F# plugin and how to install it.
