The NSA has released one of their reverse engineering tools Ghidra. This not only disassembles 6502 ( and a number of others cpus) but generates C code.

Presumably this has been released to aid cyber security research, although some will presumably have tinfoil hat theories about the men-in-black monitoring who downloads versions of the toolset. :lol:
