digitalmars.D.announce - A handy tool to build D project in Visual Studio or UltraEdit

I used to manage my D project files with DIDE. DIDE is unsupported for a 
long time. It stores all the project files in one line with full pathname. 
The line comes extraordinary long with the increase of project files so as 
to it can't handle this any more but collapse. And every time I build the 
project with DIDE, then have to switch to MS Visual Studio to bebug.

So I write this tool to build D source files in VS IDE. It's simple with no 
incremental capability. Do full build every time. But I think it is useful 
and handy.

BldTool.exe enumerates the d source files in your project (folder and 
subfolders based) and collects the information then invokes DMD to build the 
project. It's easy to use and need almost no configuration.

It can be used in console mode directly or work with those editors who 
supports customized tool configuration such as UltraEdit, Source Insight, 
EditPlus2.

Cool! This tool is very useful. It makes life easy. And now I can build and debug my projects directly in VS IDE. It seems that the tool can't build libraries. Would this capability be added?
