What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

The and tags look like dupicates of each other. However, I don't have enough score in those tags to propose synonyms.

The things aren't the same thing at all though. –  AakashM Oct 5 '11 at 14:42
    
@AakashM, but to a large extend people are using the tags as if they are the same. –  Ian Ringrose Oct 5 '11 at 14:57
    
Just because people use it that way doesn't mean that it is or should be that way. In this case we need to educate people. (This feels so strangely familiar...) –  Time Traveling Bobby Oct 5 '11 at 15:27

1 Answer 1

ildasm.exe is the MSIL disassembler and ilasm.exe is the MSIL assembler. While I can agree that there are plenty of questions where one or the other is used incorrectly, the fact is that they are two different sides of the same coin.

The tags shouldn't be merged, but questions that are mistagged should be fixed.

Should the tag be renamed to make to clear, e.g. to msil-disassembler etc –  Ian Ringrose Oct 5 '11 at 15:38
    
@IanRingrose: That might be a good solution. –  Won't Oct 5 '11 at 15:51
