Hello,

I'm not sure if this is a Mono bug (MonoTouch 4.0.0 with MonoDevelop 2.4.2) but I have a class library and in that class library I have a class named "Logger" which is used to write error data to a file. I have this class scoped as INTERNAL. From my main app I have the using statement to import this class library's namespace. Why is it that I can use this Logger class from the main project if this class is marked as INTERNAL?

I have a Logger class within the main project itself which is a little different. The one in the class library is to be used only by that library so I scoped it as INTERNAL. Come to find out when I was making "Logger.LogException" calls it was using the INTERNAL one.

Anyone have any thoughts? I thought INTERNAL was the same as FRIEND in VB?

Thx
