No, but the opposite direction works. There exist tools that, given a
disassembled source, will create an executable, which is equivalent to
that original executable ;-)


You cannot recover names, remarks, or other details, from an
executable, which are definitely lost during compilation or linking.

recover the names, maybe line numbers. -John]
