Meaning of DECOMPILER in English

DECOMPILER

Program that reads code written in machine language and translates it into an equivalent program in a high­level language.

A decompiler, or reverse compiler, attempts to reverse the process of a compiler which translates a high­level language program into a binary or exe­cutable program.

The first decompilers appeared in the early 1960s.

Many times they are too inaccurate, in which case the disassembly listing provides a far better solution to studying the program.
