One scenario is that you've lost your source code through carelessness
or something (most likely not using a revision control system like any
decent programmer does these days). My team did that once, and I've
seen two or three other such instances in the newsgroup over the years.

Another scenario is that you are trying to reverse engineer some code,
perhaps like that used within the QuickTax package by Intuit.

The answer for the OP is either "search for decompyle" or "there's
nothing available for Python 2.4 but decompyle is the closest you'll
get". (Obviously I don't know enough about decompyle to know if it
supports 2.4. The last time I saw anything about it it was only up to
2.2 or 2.3.)
