changing java applets into code

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?

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.

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

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.

yes, but then u might get not all classes, that the applet loads, during use.
