What is mansplain.exe?

Mansplain.exe is a program for fetching and maintaining help files. It is similar to the Linux man command or Get-Help in Windows PowerShell. Mansplain.exe is not meant to exclusively hold information about programs so go ahead and write files for whatever you like! Mansplain.exe also wraps the standard PowerShell Get-Help so it will return help files for PowerShell Cmdlets as well.
