"GhostDoc is a free add-in for Visual Studio that automatically generates XML
documentation comments."

I have known about GhostDoc for some time now, but didn’t believe it to be very useful in any way. I expected it to provide poorly written XML comments for the methods it’s commenting.

Anyway, today was the day I gave it a go. I downloaded it and installed it in about 30 seconds without errors. I opened Visual Studio 2005 and was met with this new context menu item:


GhostDoc writes XML comments and only XML comments, so it has no need for more than a single context menu item. I like that. Now, the real test; how will it write the comments? To my big surprise, it almost writes better comments than I can do myself.

If you haven't tried it out for your self, I can only recommend that you do. It will save you a lot of time.
