Name

ILDasm.exe — MSIL Disassembler

Synopsis

ildasm [options] file [options]

Description

Disassembles modules and assemblies. The default is to display a GUI with a tree-style representation, but you can also specify an output file. See IL Debugging elsewhere in this chapter for an extended example that uses ILDasm.exe.

Examples

ildasm b.dll
ildasm b.dll /out=b.asm

Options

Combines /header, /bytes, and /tokens. Requires the /text or /out option.

/byt[es]

Displays actual bytes (in hexadecimal) as comments amongst the MSIL.

/hea[der]

Includes file header information. Requires the /text or /out option.

/ite[m]=class[::method[(sig)]

Disassembles only the specified class or member. Requires /text or /out option.

/lin[enum]

Displays references to line numbers from the original source code. To use this option, file must be compiled with /debug.

/out: file

Displays output to a file instead of creating GUI.

/noi[l]

Suppresses display of MSIL. Requires the /text or /out option.

/sou[rce]
