Automated re-coding of assembly language in C
Automated re-coding of assembly language in C
MicroAPL Ltd, creators of the well-known PortAsm assembly-language
translation tool, today announced the launch of Relogix, an advanced new
software conversion tool which can take assembly-language source files and
automatically re-code them in readable, maintainable C, complete with
meaningful variable names and types.
Unlike most other attempts at automatic conversion from assembler to C,
Relogix produces results close to what a skilled human programmer would
produce if asked to re-write an assembler source file in C. Relogix
achieves this by:
- Reorganizing the program flow to use natural C constructs such as 'if',
'for' and 'case' statements, usually without recourse to 'goto'. Even
'spaghetti' code comes out as well-structured C source.
- Automatically deducing function prototypes in a natural C style.
Parameters originally passed to assembler subroutines either in registers
or on the stack become parameters to the corresponding C...
SpamSieve 2.0 is now available.
SpamSieve gives you back your inbox by bringing powerful Bayesian spam
filtering to popular e-mail clients. It learns what your spam looks
like, so it can block nearly all of it. It looks at your address book
and learns what your good messages look like, so it won't confuse
them with spam. Other spam filters get worse over time as spammers
adapt to their rules; SpamSieve actually gets better over time as you
train it with more messages. SpamSieve doesn't delete any
messages--it only marks them in your e-mail client--so
you'll never lose any mail. SpamSieve works with any number of
mail accounts, of whatever types are supported by your e-mail software
(e.g. POP, IMAP, Hotmail, AOL).
New in this Version:
* SpamSieve now extracts a lot more information from each message.
This makes it much more accurate and also makes it learn faster.
* Now integrates with Eudora 6 (Sponsored or Paid) via a plug-in. It
can now process every incoming Eudora...

the graph view.
