This app lets you see the actual back-end of an application and break down the code and understand how was the principle of that particular application is written.
W32DASM is fully-featured code management and disassembler tool that helps you to reverse engineer a compiled code if your experience ranges from intermediate to highly experienced. This tool relies on a low-level programming language called assembly language to discover connections between the compiled code and the actual machine code instructions which are powering the computation ability on modern Windows PCs.
