Monoflector

 Home Page Home Page

Categories: Decompilation

Author: Jonathan Dickinson

Open source front-end for Cecil Decompiler that allows you to reverse-engineer .NET assemblies into understandable code (e.g. C#).
Currently Monoflector is only being built for the Microsoft CLR, but extensibility/supplant points exists for Mono.

Latest version: 2007
Added 2005-12-11Updated 2006-10-18

Code explorer that allows to view, navigate, and analyze .NET assemblies at source level.

Features include:
- Browse and navigate .NET executables and documentation: an hyperlinked code explorer environment allows you to browse through your project. An inline help browser automatically displays assembly XML documentation side-by-side with source code.
- Code can be viewed in the C#, VB.NET, Chrome Object Pascal and IL languages.
- Translation between languages and export directly into Visual Studio 2005.
- Code profiling: sampling-based profiler identifies execution hotspots at source level. Integrated decompiler and code browser allows line-level profiling of external components and .NET Framework libraries.
- Supports versions 1.0, 1.1, and 2.0 of the Common Language Runtime.

DILE (Dotnet IL Editor) is a decompiler and an IL debugger.
It allows managed application to be debugged without having the source code and it can help to understand what is going on in the background as even the .NET Framework assemblies can be debugged. Works both on x86 (32-bit) and x64 (64-bit) operating systems.

Disassembling features:
- displaying IL code
- generics support
- quick search by different categories (classes, methods, fields, tokens, etc.)
- supports both 32 and 64-bit assemblies

Debugger features:
- both v1.1 and v2.0 applications can be debugged
- allows debugging dynamic assemblies
- attaching to process/detaching; starting new process to debug with arguments
- stepping in/out/over on the IL level
- setting instruction pointer; run to cursor
- debuggee can be stopped on specific events (e.g.: CreateThread, LoadAssembly)
- MDA (Managed Debug Assistant) notifications
- adding/removing/activating/deactivating breakpoints
- "Object Viewer" to check the current value of an object's properties and fields or evaluate expressions, call methods
