MoonShine

A .NET wrapper for (with win32 port of) sundown, the markdown library

libsundown.dll (included) is required for linkage. Also included is a simple console app for executing upskirt against markdown files.

MoonShine is at least 20x faster than MarkdownSharp when run against MarkdownSharp's own benchmark app.
