Since we're in nitpicking mode... ;) You can't retrieve "the" C source from an executable; you can however produce working C code using tools that recognise common library calls and common compiler constructs. Naturally you don't get anything like meaningful function or paramater/variable names in the de-compiled code (except for known library calls of course). As for reverse engineering of programmable devices... <http://portal.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=1344729> <http://www.ulogic.org/trac> etc. Regards, -- | Mark McDougall | "Electrical Engineers do it | <http://members.iinet.net.au/~msmcdoug> | with less resistance!"
