Abstract
Reverse engineering may be defined as a process of analyzing a subject system to create representation of the system at a higher level of abstraction. Reversing binary executables is typically done by the disassembler, but more complicated tool like decompiler can be utilized to get more readable high-level code. Time and effort needed to analyze such output is proportional to its quality. In this paper, we present description of a retargetable decompiler that is being developed within the Lissom project at FIT BUT. First, we outline the basic decompiler structure. Then overall design of data type reconstruction analysis with focus on the simple type recovery algorithm is described. In conclusion, we discuss experimental results and future research.
