disassembler (plural disassemblers)
- (computing) A computer program that examines another computer program and attempts to generate assembly language source code that would, in theory, reproduce the target program.
The term "disassembler" is properly applied only to programs that produce Assembly Language output. If the output is in another programming language such as C, the program is called a decompiler instead.
program that translates machine code into assembly language
