I have no idea where I managed to find this tool. Regardless, I finally got around to having a go with it.
Tree Surgeon is a .NET development tree generator. Just give it the name of your project, and it will set up a development tree for you in seconds. More than that, your new tree has years worth of accumulated build engineering experience build right in.
Like the quote from the website says, all you need to do is name your project and the tree gets created.
As you can see from the image it creates a structure, but what you don’t see is that there are files in those folders. The folders in the src folder contain solution, project and CSharp files. The tools folder is the great one. The N* folders that it contains all have those application’s files in it.
My only complaint, and it’s a minor complaint, is that the solution that is created is for Visual Studio 2003.
