dotnet buildcommand to build the application. This will compile the source code and generate the necessary binaries.
- Publish the Application: Run the
dotnet publishcommand to publish the application. This command will create a self-contained executable file or a set of files that can be deployed and run on the target Linux machine.For example, to publish the application as a self-contained executable for Linux-x64 architecture, you can use the following command:objectivecCopy code
