Saddle, two SDDL related tools

I’ve just uploaded two small tools that makes it a little easier to deal with SDDL (Security Descriptor Description Language, this is a good resource for SDDL):

  1. saddle-ex - “extract” the security descriptor for a number of different kinds of objects
  2. saddle-pp - a pretty printer for an SDDL string

Full build instructions are included. Download the archive here.

The tools are written (mostly) in Haskell and I’ll probably upload it all to hackage at some point in the future. I’m holding out for a fix to ticket 2097 since a fix for it will allow me to add a third tool which I feel belong in the package.

Suggestions for improvements are always welcome, patches even more so :-)
