Looks good.
What's needed to get into beta testing?

Just got an e-mail from the folks at IDA Pro (general public sales e-mail) and it looks like the IDA decompiler is going to be a separate product from their disassembler and will cost EURO 1,500.00! whoa!!

Specially considering that it is new and surely you buy a bunch of bugs as well.

Maybe I'll be monothematic, but I am curious about how new version of IDA manage self-modifying code? I suppose, that graph of logic for such programs could be completely improper (because real flow of program is different). Razz

Hm, I heard about ilfak's decompilation ideas a while ago, but back then he said that they probably would keep the stuff internal, since it could be a too powerful tool to release to the public...

Pretty steep price Smile

Hello,

I'm happy to tell you that the Hex-Rays Decompiler is being released
today. Beta testing was not easy and required implementation of some
new algorithm but I have a feeling that we managed to get rid of the
most frequent bugs and made the decompiler really robust.

The decompiler evolved during the beta testing and many usability
features got added to it. As usual, the last time corrections include
some major changes (programmers can not live without breaking... eh...
adding new stuff). These corrections include the features that make
the decompiler more interactive. For example, the commands to add
comments and change the number representations have been added.

Here is a direct link to the web site:

http://www.hex-rays.com

and this page gives more side-by-side comparisons. Decompiler and
Disassembler, which one do you prefer?

http://www.hex-rays.com/compare.shtml

Have fun. Hope you will enjoy the decompiler!

Best regards,
Ilfak mailto:ig@hexblog.com

well, at the price of $2,000 USD, i haven't purchased my personal copy yet Very Happy

however, i did purchase two copies for the company i work for in order to evaluate it. we just got our copies yesterday so it's still early to tell how good it really is, but here are my first impressions.

it's a very helpful tool. there are some shortcomings though. it tends to get some function declarations wrong and it's doesn't deal well with unusual prologues. it does have some type recognition, but it's a bit sketchy.

as advertised, there is no support for exception handling, floating point, or coprocessor FPU stuff.

as i said, it's still early on in our evaluation. it's helpful, and i'm certain it will improve over the next year. i'm definitely interested in getting a personal copy, but will probably wait a little while.
