It’s taken much too long, but I’ve finally created an online project for Manta, which until recently didn’t even have an official name. Manta is an open source .NET library that currently features a variety of I/O- and web-related classes that simplify and ease solving hard problems.
On the I/O side, Manta offers support for managing hardlinks, reparse points, junctions, symbolic links. It also comes with unit tests and documented methods and classes.
On the web side, Manta enables easy manipulation of URLs, RSS feeds and phpBB posts. It too features unit tests and documentation.
