    Just something I've been writing for the past while, it's basically a do everything command line package of little tools, It aims to do alot of different things but only do each to a basic level.

    Features
    - Creating a empty file
    - Creating a empty image file
    - Creating a checkerboard image
    - Writing out a template to a filename
    - Escape a string
    - Modify a C# project file to build in the solution directory
    - Print all readable strings from any file
    - Compile C#
    - Prints types and members in a .Net DLL
    - Copy's a code file to a template directory
    - Adds a code file in the template directory to a C# project

    Special Thanks

    Thank you NorthernGate for the name

    Source

    I am distributing this file for now using my Dropbox public folder, if this ever becomes a problem I will move it to a Github project or something.

    Source File: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/2014606/util/util.cs

    You will need to compile this file to use the program, if your not sure how to do that then you won't find any use in this.

    Bugs
    - Currently all switches are handled though one big switch statement, calling methods. I will be moving this to reflection and attributes once I have some free time.
    - The types and members script will fail under quite a few different circumstances
    - There is a couple windows specific things and i'm not sure if it will run on mono, I will try and resolve this when I have a chance.

    Below this is just dribble of stuff I want to add to the project

    Ideas
    - Simple HTTP Server - Just serves all web files from the working directory
    - Zipped Templates - They will be decompressed into the target path
    - Encryption and Decryption - Just more as a toy then anything else
    - Zipping - Quite a nice thing to have on the command line
    - Hashes
    - Empty and Junk Files - Something that would be useful for some reason
    - Regex
