How do i determine the contents of a DLL?

Hi,

I have a DLL which contains VB.NET code. What tools are available to determine what namespaces, classes, functions (and their parameters) it has. Does such a tool exist? Or even better, is it a bit far fetched to ask if a tool exists which reverse engineers the DLL to retrieve the code which constitutes it?

cheers

I'm not sure if you read through the description. it says its a class browser, decompiler, etc. then what kind of tool are you looking for?

Reflector for .NET:
Reflector is the class browser, explorer, analyzer and documentation viewer for .NET. Reflector allows to easily view, navigate, search, decompile and analyze .NET assemblies in C#, Visual Basic and IL.
