    It's tough to go from compiled code to high level souce code. It's been a while since I did any of that stuff, but I think the best you can hope for is to get to assembly language. The point of compiling (and linking) is to get to an executable program. Going from souce to machine language, many different source statements might translate to the same machine code, especially with a good optimizer.

    The best you can hope for is a disassembler. Consider, once compiled to object, a de-compiler has no little or idea what the original high-level language was.

    If you need one, I just happen to have a manual for IBM 360 FORTRAN 66. :supergrin:

    Man, that's even older than what I had. Up until recently, I had a manual for VAX Fortran.
