Closest point on Curve?

There used to be a script/plugin for creating a closestPointOnCurve node.

You could then use it to return that data.

I don't see it in the plug-in list and all the places you can download it are for very old versions of maya.

Where doth this useful command hide in maya 2012/2013 and why isn't it just a part of the basic mel commands now?

Sometimes we want to, you know, make objects around a curve go towards the curve where they are the closest. Maybe for modelling, maybe for animation, who knows.

Thanks in advance for any info.

Its hiding in the bonusTools (as a plugin).
