[Mono-dev] Compatible dll's

Is there any way to verify if two dll's are compatible?

We use mcs to compile a set of cs files, which also reference some dll. Now
this dll has been changed. Most of the time only internals inside some
functions in that dll will be changed. So i would like to find out if the
two dll's are still compatible, somehow comparing their signatures. Then i
will only recompile the cs files if it is really necessary.

So i want to check if all classes, functions & all their parameters still
exist and are identitical to what we had when mcs compiled against the dll
last time.

So is there any way to detect compatibility between two dll's? Are there
some functions to already do this?

Best regards,
Joachim Ante
