What is the purpose of Ildasm.exe?

 Posted by Rajnilari2015 on 10/20/2016 | Category: C# Interview questions | Views: 3051 | Points: 40

Ildasm.exe is a tool which takes a Portable Executable(PE) file that contains IL code and creates a text file as the input to Ilasm.exe.
This tool is installed as a part of Visual Studio installation. Once we have the compiled code (.exe/.dll), we can open it through the ildasm.exe interface and this tool will display the structure of decompilation.
Ildasm.exe shows only metadata descriptions for .obj and .lib input files.
Ildasm.exe only operates on PE files which are on disk and not on the files installed in the global assembly cache.
