Introduction to Reverse Engineering Software
by Mike Perry, Nasko Oskov
Publisher: UIUC 2004
Number of pages: 211
This book is an attempt to provide an introduction to reverse engineering software under both Linux and Microsoft Windows. The goal of this book is not to cover how to reproduce an entire program from a binary, but instead how to use the Scientific Method to deduce specific behavior and to target, analyze, extract and modify specific operations of a program, usually for interoperability purposes.

This book proposes to separate knowledge from software and to make it a commodity that is called knowware. The architecture, representation and function of Knowware are discussed. The principles of knowware engineering are analyzed.
The problems to solve in software engineering are so complex or large, that a single developer cannot solve them anymore. This book is an introduction to the art of software engineering. It is intended as a textbook for an undergraduate level course.
