On the meaning of reverse engineering, it depends on who you ask. In the
academic and most traditional meaning of the word it means any process to
turn a working product back into specifications, normally with the
intention to use those to produce another product with some or all
aspects of the original.
But yes, most people just use it to mean "disassemble".
