Can a windows program be written to access a sharepoint 2010 library that does not require being developed on a sharepoint 2010 server using Visual Studio?

Are there any tools available for accessing a Sharepoint 2010 library using visual studio other than Microsoft.Sharepoint.dll? I need to write a few windows utlities to support a sharepoint library so that I can add, remove, and determine the age of sharepoint documents.

Please advise

Hello,
You can use REST-based web services to accomplish this:

The application based on web service you can run from any computer , you just need permissions for the library you want to read/change.
