    Craig Andera, the author of Craigsblog has created a cool tool for Microsoft Programmers that resembles the UNIX man pages.

    When Kim, Tim, and I were working on MSDN2 - or more accurately, the Microsoft/Technet Publishing System (MTPS), the system behind MSDN2 - way back when, we always had in mind that it was important to create a system where the content could be leveraged in ways other than to power the MSDN2 website. And we did - every time you hit F1 in Visual Studio 2005, you're accessing the MTPS system. Now that the MTPS Content Service is publicly available, we expect other applications of the data to start popping up.

    To get the ball rolling, and because we always thought it would be cool, I've written the first one. I call it msdnman, and users of *nix systems should find it fairly familiar: it's written as an analog of the man command. The idea is to provide command-line access to the MTPS content.


    It's pretty straightfoward to use. Simply grab the binaries here:

    and run something like

    msdnman System.Xml.XmlReader
