Well, it depends on what it does - but most C compilers offer 'inline assembly code', so

void MyFunc( void)
/* your assember code here */

should do it...

Better: There is no general way to do this...

Ahh, you need a decompiler - check out

Quote from the page:

"Decompilation is a technique that allows you to recover lost source code. It is also needed in some cases for computer security, interoperability and error correction. dcc, and any decompiler in general, should not be used for "cracking" other programs, as programs are protected by copyright. Cracking of programs is not only illegal but it rides on other's creative effort. See the ethics of decompilation for more information. "

BTW: Though it's the best decompiler I've found on the web, the results will not be convenient to read, as there's no way to tell what the symbols (function's and variable's names) have been without having the debugging information...
