    No such thing exists.

    A few things can get simpler programs back to something looking like shrouded source code, but its not something you'd ever want to work on.

    Decompiling is about as reversible as baking a cake is reversible.
    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.

    Yep, C++ code to my knowledge cannot be reversed back to source code, it can however be disassembled into ASM code to work on but thats not very fun. I think pretty much all .NET code can be reversed back its orignal source though unless it has external protection on it.
