Cool tool: Lutz Roeder’s Reflector

Reflector by Lutz Roeder is probably the tool I use most often when developing .NET code, well just after Visual Studio 2005 anyway. And now there is a new version, 5, out. Still free, still excellent. Highly recommended.

 



Enjoy!

  3. Gives me insight into what the .NET framework is actually doing where in the old days I had to reverse engineer behavior by observation of a black box.

    Quickly show me where a type is created or expose over multiple assembles, even with no source code.

    Show me all derived types of a specific type is another useful feature.

    Then there are all the plugins with add even more like dependency diagrams or the ability to dump the source back to disk.
