Mono.Reflection is an helper library to complement the System.Reflection and System.Reflection.Emit namespaces.

It works on both Mono >= 2.8 and .net >= 4.0.


public sealed class Image {
    public static bool IsAssembly (string fileName) {}
    public static bool IsAssembly (Stream stream) {}

Test whether a file is a managed assembly or not.

public static class BackingFieldResolver {
    public static FieldInfo GetBackingField (this PropertyInfo self) {}

Returns the field backing a property or throws an InvalidOperationException.

public static class Disassembler {
    public static IList<Instruction> GetInstructions (this MethodBase self) {}

Returns a read only collection of Instruction representing the IL method body or throws an ArgumentException if the method doesn't provide a body.

public class Instruction {
    public int Offset { get; }
    public OpCode OpCode { get; }
    public object Operand { get; }

    public Instruction Next { get; }
    public Instruction Previous { get; }

Represents an IL instruction.
