Is there a way to get a list of classes, attributes and methods in plain text from a Visual Studio Solution. I've already tried with SandCastle but it is too complex for what I want.

I could not download "ctags" something must be wrong with the server. I don't have a few hours to write my own utility but thanks for the advice. Doxygen it's taken too long. I'll let you know the outcome.
