This week, we're updating our course layouts and descriptions. Presentation and materials always gently change over time, but just occasionally there's a need to make a step change to clear out some of the old and roll in the new. That's now happening - but over a long and complex site it's not instant and you'll see sections of the site changing up to and including 19th September.

Disassembling Python and Java - previously compiled code
Most modern languages translate the source code you give into an intermediate byte code prior to it being run, and in can sometimes be useful and instructive to reverse engineer the code to help to understand what's going on within the more arcane elements of the language. Some languages actually provide tools to help you ...
In Python, the dis (for disassemble) module provides the functionality - see [here]
for an example. In java, the javap
utility with a -c
option does the job for you. For Lua, disassembers such as luadec
are available third party, and it gets very interesting with PHP, Ruby and Perl, assuming you even have the compiled code available. (written 2011-01-29, updated 2011-02-10)
