    Does anyone know if you can obtain source codes from a complied program? If
    so how?

    Thanx

    There's such a thing as a disassembler. It attempts to convert binary
    executables into assembler code. Of course if you cant read / write
    assembler, its not worth the trouble. ;)

    Me thinks I misread your post.

    If Reverse Engineering is your quest here's a good start:

    If the source code is made available, yes. If not, no.
    Note: decompiled code is NOT source code.
