Semaphore file generator

jrlopezp has created two tools to assist with the creation of semaphore files, a system tray tool and a command line tool.

The system tray version now supports command lines options, so this is likely the best solution.

Release Notes:
[July/02/2005 –]
the program now accepts command switches for the creation of the semaphore files so now you can create schedule batch files and take advantage of thie new feature.

example: “c:\mdsemgen /a” (assuming MDsemgen.exe is located in C:\) will create an ALIAS.SEM in the APP folder.

For a list of available switches you can type “mdsemgen /?” or “mdsemgen /help”

UPDATE (2008/06/03): Version 2.0 has been released, see the update.
