in thread extracting open reading frame (ORF) from a FASTA file

Hi,
why is it necessary to reverse complement the dna sequence to search for reading frames? can't we just find the reading frames without doing so?
and one last question, what are "in- frames"? i'm still not clear about it even after referring to books and other resources.

thanks!
