Abstract (2. Language): 
Software reverse engineering is a discipline of generating the system of abstracts and design information by analyzing the effects, functions, behaviors and documents of the software codes on hardware components. Assembler, unassembler, virtual simulators and debuggers can be listed as software reverse engineering tools. In this study, an unassembler application is developed for translating various-length machine codes, which belong to Intel microprocessor instruction set, into the symbolic form of the machine language. This application is designed both for 32-bit Intel microprocessor architectures while it can also be used for compilers. It is an open source software with the capabilities of translating table-based in-line codes and offering a certain hierarchy for the procedure. In addition, updating the software is also possible for future considerations. With its nature of working both as an assembler and an unassembler, this software brings a different perspective and depth to the existing table-based unassembler applications which are only used for certification and description.
Abstract (Original Language): 
Yazılım tersine mühendisliği; yazılım kodlarının donanım bileşenleri üzerindeki etkilerini, işlevlerini, davranış ve belgelerini analiz ederek sistem soyutlarını ve tasarım bilgilerini oluşturan bir tersine mühendislik disiplinidir. Çevirici (assembler), tersine çevirici (unassembler), sanal simülatörler ve hata ayıklayıcılar (debugger) birer yazılım tersine mühendislik araçlarıdır. Bu çalışmada, Intel mikroişlemci komut kümesine ait farklı uzunluklardaki makine kodlarını sembolik dile dönüştüren bir tersine çevirici uygulaması geliştirilmiştir. Bu uygulama, 32-bitlik Intel işlemci mimarisinde kullanılan, aynı zamanda derleyicilere yönelik, sembolik dilden makine kodlarına çevrimde, güncellenebilen ve belli bir hiyerarşi sunan açık kaynak kodlu, tablo tabanlı satır-içi kod çevrimi yapabilen bir yazılımdır. Hem assembler hem de unassembler olarak çalışan bu yazılım, sadece belgelendirme ve açıklama mahiyetindeki mevcut tablo tabanlı unassembler uygulamalarına farklı bir bakış açısı ve derinlik getirmiştir.
