dotPeek benefits?

Just downloaded dotPeek and tried which seems to work fine at the moment.

I was wondering that dotPeek- has 24 MB and 64 DLLs which is a lot for such a tool?
(compared with Reflector ;))


  1. What are the advandages/disadvantages compared to Reflector?
  2. Will there be support for ReSharper 5.1 or will I need to upgrade to ReSharper 6? (using a "Personal License" for "personal/private coding" and for just "playing" with the tool it will be too expensive upgrading to R# 6)
  3. How will dotPeek handle dotfuscated code?
  4. Why is it sooo big (24 MB, 64 DLLs, ...)?
  5. Will it work with assemblies merged with ILMerge?
  6. Will it remain free? (after EAP)

Thanks a lot for your time!
