ReFox Help - Introduction
ReFox is a multi-purpose and easy-to-use utility for viewing and restoring source code
from Visual FoxPro 9.0, VFP 8.0, VFP 7.0, VFP 6.0, VFP 5.0, VFP 3.0,
FoxPro 2.x, FoxPro 1 and FoxBASE+ compiled modules and executables.
The ReFox decompiler is able to decompile standard and encrypted Fox compiled modules
for the purpose of source code recovery
/* caution */.
ReFox is invaluable in situations where the source code is lost or damaged or if it uncertain
that the source code matches the compiled application.
ReFox also provides a mechanism for branding Visual FoxPro and FoxPro 2.x application
to protect it from unwanted decompilation. (see protection / branding)
The ReFox decompiler reconstructs source code by splitting
an APP, EXE or DLL file into components and further decompiling the compiled modules
and producing custom formatted source code, which is functionally the same as the original,
including the names of variables, procedures, functions and other program elements.
The ReFox built-in compiler and builder
builds applications from project files (.pjx/.pjt) and compiles all VFP
source code. The generated compiled code is equivalent to VFP9 compiled code
including debug informations. The built-in compiler can be used to
synchronize METHODS and OBJCODE fields in .vcx and .scx after source code in
METHODS was decompiled from OBJCODE.
