This report describes investigations into DISCOVER, a modern software development and maintenance environment. The study is guided by a framework for classifying program understanding tools that is based on a description of the canonical activities that are characteristic of the reverse engineering process. Implications of this work for advanced practitioners, researchers and tool developers, and the framework itself are discussed.
