I think it is the reverse of encoding encoding is 👉 translating information the form of symbols ( I do not know exactly)


Decoding is all about converting an encrypted message or information into a readable or understandable language. You can only decode an encrypted message if you know the technique by which it was encoded or encrypted. If we don't know it's specific technique to decrypt then it becomes impossible to decrypt.




Alok Singh Chauhan that sounds like the definition of decompiling.


Converting a coded message into intelligible language is known as decoding.


As I am a Programmer. So, I will talk with respect to programming. In the case of programming decoding simply means "converting machine language code back to programming language source code". For more Articles, visit my blog; https://doalongme.com/


According to Universal Dictionary app: 💻decode - interpret a code, to find the meaning of a code. 💻code - (computer science) the symbolic arrangement of data or instructions in a computer program or the set of such instructions. 💻de- (prefix, according to Wiktionary) - reversal, undoing or removal. So, I think of decoding as ‘undoing/reversing/removing’ parts of code from its original ‘arrangement of data’ to discover the deeper meaning of the data (in the code).
