Objective: Learning to
use a commercial C and C++ reverse engineering, visualization, documentation
and metrics tool
In lab. 3
students used CodeSurfer for program slicing. In this lab students will do
further program understanding and analysis experiments, using Imagix 4D. Imagix
4D is a tool for reverse engineering, visualizing and documenting C and C++
systems. It also provides various metrics for the code under analysis. Imagix
4D is a commercial tool provided by the courtesy of Imagix 4D. Until license
key installation takes place, students will run the very useful tutorial that
accompanies the trial version.
Imagix 4D is already on the machine that Jimmy works on.

you need to allocate 10 hours to learning Imagix 4D to master it. We will be
using for further course work too. There is also a useful user guide.
