I wrote it a few years ago...

Also supports a few more options:

classman (0.0.3):  Helps manage your classpath within Java



    Prints out your current classpath in a readable manner

classman --find <CLASSNAME> [--all]

    Determines which entry in your classpath contains the given CLASSNAME.
    This can also be a package name.  --all specifies to dump all matching classes.

    EXAMPLE: classman --find java.lang.Exception

classman --findResource <FULL_CLASSNAME|RESOURCE>

    Runs ClassLoader.findResource on the parameter you provide.  This can be useful
    for finding a class or resource within your VM if you think there may be a conflict..

    EXAMPLE: classman --findResource java/lang/Exception.class

classman --packages <DIRECTORY>

    Determines the Java packages under the specified directory.

WinXXX??  I don't want to see what your screensaver looks like ;)..

I will take a look.
