Posted by CodeX [send private reply] at July 03, 2003, 08:39:58 AM Yes, you can dissassemble any program into assembler code. There are free decompilers for java out there too. NASM comes with a built-in disassembler program and will disassemble all the apps that you can make with it (which is an impressive range). DJ java decompiler is free and available online, just do a search.
If you mean return the code to the source it originally was, then, no. You don't get back variable names, function names, comments, or any of that stuff. I'd suggest using nasm, it's fast, free, and will do what you need it to do.

It produces understandable, but not compilable, C code. The author site says: "It reads an executable file, and attempts to produce a C-like representation of the code and data used to build the executable file."
