Manta is an open source .NET library featuring classes for dealing with reparse points, junctions, symbolic links, RSS feeds, phpBB posts, URLs and a wide variety of other useful tasks.


Currently, the I/O assembly of Manta has been released, featuring support for managing hardlinks, reparse points, junctions and symbolic links. The project includes documented classes and methods, and some basic unit tests on the junction management functionality.


You can download Manta on CodePlex.


Manta is a living project, and is under active development. Bugs reports, issues and suggestions are always welcome, but I’d also love to hear about where Manta has helped you.
