All,

Can someone recommend a good tutorial on reverse engineering tool?

I have a green light to reverse engineer code that was developed in 1989, but the most recent release is in 1997.  It reminds me of Windows 3.2 GUIs.

I'm not sure what coding language the program is in.

Any idea on how I can find that out besides for trying to get in contact with the author?

Mike

there's a big list of RE tools with the description of what they do here http://www.woodmann.com/collaborative/tools/index.php/Category:Categorized_by_Tool_Type.
Also pick a basic RE book from the reference library tab in this website. That should keep you going.

the industry standard tool for static reverse engineering is IDA if you can afford it.
REing is a complicated task, if you only wish to do it once you are invited to better describe your ultimate goal, so we could suggest the best methods and approaches to achieve your goal in the best way.
there are more then a few approaches to RE that strongly depend on the task at hand.

p.s.
1989 was the year i was born :D
