W32DASM should be here as well[edit]

W32DASM should be here as well, I think. I used it myself and it is worth mentioning. --Arek —Preceding unsigned comment added by 195.225.69.204 (talk) 12:48, 22 September 2010 (UTC)[]

Other links[edit]

Why you have ignored the links suggested by me? They were taken from http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disassembler

dmoz.org has no volunters to modify their page with list of disassembler!

there are very nice sites:

which are moderated today,

Disassembler list[edit]

I've been wondering if this article should have a more exhaustive list of disassemblers. Three is hardly very many, and since they're all for the x86 platform, someone looking for disassemblers for, say, ARM or MIPS would be quite disappointed. --Aurochs

I think that IDA supports lots of different platforms. Salvatore Ingala 2 July 2005 01:02 (UTC)
It does, but it also costs 439 USD for a personal license. That's out of most people's price ranges. So, yeah, I'd like to see a more diverse list of more sanely-priced software. =P --Aurochs
Yes please! I need something to disassemble ARM (little-endian xscale) on my Debian box. IDA would be ideal, but it wouldn't run on Debian-ppc even if I were willing to pay $439. I'm looking at 114560 bytes here, so objdump is going to be really painful. AlbertCahalan 05:10, 14 August 2007 (UTC)[]

Personally I feel that IDA is available at a very reasonal price considering what it is. Most commercial tools of a niche nature are very expensive, they are priced for corporations, whereas IDA is still affordable by hobbyist. Contrast IDA's price with HBGary's Inspector (an order of magnitude in pricing). 59.167.38.203 (talk) 14:43, 6 February 2008 (UTC)[]

Merge Disassembler with Disassembly[edit]

Agreed, you can't talk about disassembling without disassemblers and vice versa. Thus, the articles should be put up together.

In my opinion, merging Disassembler with Disassembly is a bad idea. While Disassembler may at this point be most common used within software engineering, the software engineering usage of Disassembly is merely a small subset of its meaning. The Wikipedia is a general reference, not a software engineering specific reference. We should not arbitrarily limit the content to a small portion of its meaning. --Makyen 12006-09-12 15:55 UTC

Reverse Engineering Wikibook[edit]

I've posted similar messages to this one in one or two other articals, so if that bothers anybody, let me know. I've started a Wikibooks:Reverse Engineering wikibook, and am looking to generate interest among readers and contributers. So far the book has been able to cover some basic topics in disassembly and reverse engineering, but unfortunately there simply havent been enough contributers to really expand the sections on basic disassembly, and create new sections on more advanced disassembly topics. If you want to help out with the project, swing by and read what we have --Whiteknight 14:26, 12 October 2005 (UTC)[]

OMG thank you. I'll be sure to help wherever possible. --Aurochs

reassembler?[edit]

The article ends with a remark about reassemblers. However I don know what that means, and cannot find a reference to it.

Sourcer etc.[edit]

Very often disassembly can be facilitated by an appropriate preprocessor- like the BIOS Preprocessor that was available for Sourcer. Does anybody know what became of it? --MarkMLl (talk) 11:05, 25 May 2008 (UTC)[]
