Project Description
Administer SQL Compact databases directly from the command line, without having Visual Studio or SQL Server Management Studio installed. Only requires NetFx 2.0 and SQL Compact installed. Command line options similar to sqlcmd. Also runs any SQL Compact script files. Runs scripts generated by ExportSqlCe

The specifications (in the form of documentation on usage) for the utility is available with the current release.

A three part tutorial on SqlCeCmd usage is available here:
SqlCeCmd tutorial part one – Managing database files
SqlCeCmd tutorial part two – Creating database objects and adding data
SqlCeCmd tutorial part three – query options

I have decided to use the CodePlex project as the command line parser in this project.
