Matt is almost right, but there already is a utility that will decompile the fxp it is called REFOX. You can find it at www.hallogram.com i believe it costs around $399.00.

PS. Do not ask anyone to send you a copy of REFOX as that is one of our pet P's that we hate. You can ask but not at this site.
