If I give you an executable, can you extract the source? I'd love to see that.

    And?

    If I give you an executable, can you extract the source? I'd love to see that.

    I could (filealyzer,peexplorer,objdump....), but I'm not a monkey

    ;P

      Yes, except that NONE of those will magically extract the source.
