pdc   pseudo disassembler output in C-like syntax

I'm curious to know how the plugin r2dec-js compares to pdc it seems like they do the same thing.

There is a huge difference between pdc and pdd (r2dec).

  • pdc provide a basic r2 pseudo code with some and it's mostly for x86/x64.
  • pdd provides a more advance pseudo-C like code where the controlflow, instructions, delayed branches, etc.. have been analyzed and tries to provide some slightly more readable code to the user.

pdd is only available after installing r2dec from r2pm.

  • This is exactly what I was looking for a high level run down of the differences. Thanks. Commented Apr 6, 2018 at 16:33
