Yo, Package This!

I note that the cheekily-named Package This just went up on CodePlex. I had nothing to do with writing it, other than answering a couple of questions from the author.


The description from the project page:


Package This is a GUI tool written in C# for creating help files (.chm and .hxs) from the content obtained from the MSDN Library via the MSDN Content Service. You select the content you want from the table of contents, build a help file, and use the content offline. You are making personalized ebooks of MSDN content. Both help file formats also give full text search and keyword search.

The code illustrates how to use the MSDN Content Service to retrieve documentation from MSDN. It also shows how to build .hxs files and .chm files programmatically.


It's great to see interesting new applications making use of the web service!
