Take a look at Type Reflector (CVS module: type-reflector).
This command will display all public members (events, properties,
fields, methods, etc.), in C#-like syntax, including all Attributes
specified on the classes/members, sending output to the console:
type-reflector --displayer=console \
-S -a AssemblyYouCareAbout
The code that actually displays the Attributes of a particular member is
in formatters/LanguageNodeFormatter.cs:AddCustomAttribute (StringBuilder
sb, object attribute, string attributeType). It uses reflection on the
Attribute object to get all fields and properties, then prints out the
values of those fields and properties.

You're doing that already, sort of; that's what
ICustomAttributeProvider.GetCustomAttributes(bool) does. You're always
checking against ObsoleteAttribute, though; if you wanted to know *all*
attributes, you should print them *all* out. :-)

You can use System.Reflection to get this. See Type Reflector for an
example, as specified above.

Someone else already mentioned Assembly.GetTypes()...
