The CLI module is basically represented as a tree of objects what are called Declaration in PostSharp. The root of the module tree is the ModuleDeclaration. Modules are contained in assemblies (AssemblyEnvelope) and assemblies are bounded in the scope of a specified .
All elements that are a part of aare represented by the type. This class is basically a tree node. instances have two properties: gives the direct parent, and gives the root .
The child-parent relationship is managed automatically when the child is related to the parent either adding it into a collection of children, either setting it as the value of a property of the parent.
