    Default Get source from .o file

    Hi. I accidentally deleted my project and I'm trying to get it back. I was able to undelete almost all of it, except for one .h and .cpp pair. I managed to recover the .o file corresponding to my last compilation of that pair and I'd like to know if it's possible to get the sources from that file somehow

    I do have a back up, but it's 400 km away on a turned off computer, so I won't have access to it until March

    Thank you for your help. Merry Christmas

    Sounds like you're in Antarctica for the summer...

    You need to look for something called a "decompiler" for whatever compiler you are using (g++ maybe?). Boomerang might do the job or at least get you started. Here's another link.
