The monodis program is used to dump the contents an ECMA/ISO CIL image (contained in .EXE files that contain extended PE/COFF CIL code). To roundtrip assemblies using ilasm, it is best to use the --output argument, as that will make monodis save the embedded resources in files that can later be properly embedded back by ilasm. Additionally, the tool can be used to dump the contents of the various ECMA CIL metadata tables.
The following Generic options are supported: --help , -h Displays usage instructions. --output=FILENAME Write output into FILENAME and dump any embedded managed resources. --mscorlib For non-corlib assemblies, use "mscorlib" as the assembly name. This is useful for round-tripping the IL with ilasm. --show-method-tokens Display tokens for disassembled methods.
The following options are used to display metadata tables instead of disassembling the CIL image. --assembly Dumps the contents of the Assembly table. --assemblyref Dumps the contents of the AssemblyRef table. --classlayout Dumps the contents of the ClassLayout table. --constant Dumps the contents of the Constant table. --customattr Dumps the contents of the CustomAttribute table. --declsec Dumps the contents of the DeclSec table. --event Dumps the contents of the Event table. --exported Dumps the contents of the ExportedType table. --fields Dumps the contents of the Field table. --file Dumps the contents of the File table. --forward-decls Dumps forward declarations for classes. --genericpar Dumps the contents of the GenericParam table. --implmap Dumps the contents of the ImplMap table. --interface Dumps the contents of the InterfaceImpl table. --manifest Dumps the contents of the ManifestResource table. --marshal Dumps the contents of the FieldMarshal table. --memberref Dumps the contents of the MemberRef table. --method Dumps the contents of the MethodDef table. --methodimpl Dumps the contents of the MethodImpl table. --methodspec Dumps the contents of the MethodSpec table. --methodsem Dumps the contents of the MethodSemantics table. --module Dumps the contents of the Module table. --moduleref Dumps the contents of the ModuleRef table. --mresources Saves all the managed resources embedded in the assembly into the current directory. To get a list of the embedded resources use the --manifest option. --presources Prints offsets and names of manifest resources embedded in the assembly. --nested Dumps the contents of the NestedClass table. --param Dumps the contents of the Param table. --parconst Dumps the contents of the GenericParameterConstraint table. --property Dumps the contents of the Property table. --propertymap Dumps the contents of the PropertyMap table. --standalonesig Dumps the contents of the StandAloneSig table. --typedef Dumps the contents of the TypeDef table. --typespec Dumps the contents of the TypeSpec table. --typeref Dumps the contents of the TypeRef table. --blob Dumps the entire contents of the blob stream as hex. --strings Dumps the contents of the Strings heap. --userstrings Dumps the contents of the User-Strings heap If no flags are specified the program dumps the content of the image in a format that can be used to rountrip the code.
MONO_PATH Provides a search path to mono and mint where to look for library files. Directories are separated by the platform path separator (colons on unix). Example: /home/username/lib:/usr/local/mono/lib
