What is decompilation?

An executable file is converted to high-level source code by a computer program known as a decompiler. In contrast to a traditional compiler, which converts high-level languages into low-level languages, it accomplishes the exact reverse. Decompilers go one step further and convert the code into a higher-level language, such as C or Java, needing more advanced techniques than disassemblers, which transform an executable into assembly language. Decompilers frequently produce obfuscated code since they are unable to completely rebuild the original source code. They continue to be a crucial tool in the reverse engineering of computer software, nonetheless.
