I've zipped and attached my source. Unfortunately I only have a few
minutes tonight, so I can't go into a lot of detail at the moment, but
here are some things you ought to know:

1. It's C# (this was/is my "learn C#" project).
2. It only supports Milestone 9.1 and bjam 03.01.09. My plan
is to update it to also include Milestone 10 and beyond, but I haven't
finished yet. If you run it on another version of you will
get a warning, but it will attempt to run. I don't know what the results
will be like, however.
3. It supports files built with cl.exe, and rc.exe. I am *hoping* to
automatically generate custom build targets for other tools. This is
next on my to-do list after finishing the regression test facility.
4. It uses Visual Studio .NET 2003, so you'll need that installed to run
it - and also to build it :-)
5. It's a console app, and has several command line parameters. It has a
usage message which describes them, so you should be able to work it out.

You can probably tell that the project wasn't actually intended to go
public yet, but it will be nice to get a bit of feedback. I just hope it
works - or at least compiles ;-)

Let me know how you get on.
