I am looking for a program that converts an applet that I view on the internet into code and stores the code on my harddrive so I can read and edit the code from someone elses applet.

Question:  where can I download a program like this?

Go to www.gamelan.com.  There are several byte-code decompilers available there.  Some are free, others are shareware.

Maybe you haven't understand jhances Answer: he is right, the only way to view the source code of an Applet, which u view in your browser.
Download a decompiler, empty your cache directory of your browser, then go to the applet, and copy all class files from your cache directory to your hd. Now u can use the decompiler, but u might have problems decompiling the byte-code, depends which decompiler u use, and if the byte-code was obsfuscated.
Try different ones, and u will see, what the best result is.

You don't have to empty your cache, etc.  You can just look at the source code that calls the applet, and then do a direct download from your browser.
