Installing Dot Net Core on a Mac

All the instructions for this can be found on the Microsoft web site at

I want to install dotnet core on my Mac so that I can perform development locally of an ASP.NET core web site and I am using Visual Studio Code and the command prompt.

First step is to go to this link and click download.

Once I clicked this link I then downloaded a .pkg file which I was then able to open to install and run the dotnet SDK. So to do that I opened a terminal prompt and run the dotnet command. I also ran the dotnet --help command so that I could see what options are available with the dotnet cli.
