This paper describes a method for automatically extracting function bodies from linked software binaries. It utilizes procedure-calling conventions along with limited control and data now information. It has been tested with the TI C6000 DSP processor platform. Results are reported on eight benchmarks for which our algorithm successfully identifies all functions. It identifies 198% more functions than by the use procedure calling conventions alone.
