Can  c# applications be built from multipe external assemblies, or should librarys and/or dlls be used instead?  What is the best practice here?

    Just see the below commandline option..
    Referencing Multiple External Assemblies

    If you want to reference numerous assemblies at the command line, you can specify multiple /reference options. For the sake of argument, assume our client application needs to use types contained in a library named NewLib.dll:

    csc /t:exe /r:MyCodeLibrary.dll /r:NewLib.dll *.cs

    As a slightly simpler alternative, you may use a single /reference option and specify each assembly using a semi-colon delimited list:

    csc /t:exe /r:MyCodeLibrary.dl;NewLib.dll *.cs

    Of course, the same syntax would be used when authoring a C# response file.
