How do I get the code from a DLL?

I've a dll file and want to check whats in it. Is there any way of checking it out, something like DJ Decompiler.

Regards

Hi prasen,

That's easy to do in Java, but not in a compiled language. The DLL consists of machine code created by a compiler and it's practically impossible to get the source back. There are a few tools out there that will create at least readable Assembler code, but I'm not sure if that's good enough.
If the DLL is a commercial product you might even violate the vendor's rights by disassembling the dll.
