Is anyone aware of a tool that can examine C++ source code generated from IDL and determine what the original IDL was?

Thanks, Alan

I don't think such a tool exists. Different vendors may choose to implement the C++ code in slightly different ways, and so if such a tool existed, it should be aware of all the different ways in which vendors choose to implement things like sequences, _var types, etc.

By just analysing the C++ code you should be able to reconstruct the original IDL to quite some extent I guess.

Regards,
Erik.
