    My source code has been replaced by...

    I closed my file, opened it again, and main.c is just filled with the text below the next paragraph...

    The .exe still works as a program, but I have no can't get at the source code! I have to have this assignment handed up in an hour! Is there anyway of decompiling the .exe (it's just a console program) to get the source code??

    Nope, you're hosed.
    Unless you have a prog.$$$ or prog.bak file lying around from your previous edit.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
