  • How detailed do you want? Function-level or within a function?

     

    I believe FxCop (which includes integrated VS support) includes some dead code detection at the function level.  I believe C# will check for within a function.

    Note that methods can be accessed from outside the assembly, so a method may need to be private, etc to really be "dead".
