Thank you Dittmer for your reply now i understand what disassembles means. It means converting machine language to assembly language. What iis the use of converting? Directly we can execute that program.

The point is to make the code human readable. With assembly language you have a chance of understanding what's going on; with machine language (which is often in hex) few mere mortals do :-)
