Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I lost some source code that has been compiled into an .exe. Is there a way that I can revert the exe back to pl so I can recover the source code?

      I used the PDK 5.1. Just recently had to install and upgraded to 5.3. Thoughts?
