  author={Hausi A. M{\"u}ller and Kenny Wong and Scott R. Tilley},
Software engineering research has focused primarily on software construction, neglecting software maintenance and evolution. Observed is a shift in research from synthesis to analysis. The process of reverse engineering is introduced as an aid in program understanding. This process is concerned with the analysis of existing software systems to make them more understandable for maintenance, re-engineering, and evolution purposes. Presented is reverse engineering technology developed as part of… CONTINUE READING
