Abstract:

This report describes a framework for reverse engineering environments used to aid program understanding. The framework is based on a descriptive model that categorizes important support mechanism features based on a hierarchy of attributes. The attributes include cognitive model support, reverse-engineering tasks, canonical activities that are characteristic of the reverse-engineering process, quality attributes supported by the reverse-engineering environment, and miscellaneous characteristics.
