.NET Source Code Mass Downloader

On 1/16/08, Microsoft announced the ability to download some of the .NET Framework source code for debugging. This download process was only supported inside of a properly configured Visual Studio 2008.

21 Days Later: Kerem Kusmezer and John Robbins released a tool to download the source code en mass. Frankly, I'm surprised it took so long. : )

I crafted a stupid script using srctool and wget in about few hours after I've got the URL and instructions. I think people just downloaded and sit silent ;)

I was amazed also, because my initial version was also so, i used fiddler for reversing the urls , and downloaded anything first :)

The good thing is, it does pe pdb signature resolving, and also includes a pdb parser , so it will hopefully work with whole coming download versions :)
