An experiment is conducted on how well expert users of program comprehension tools are able to perform specific program understanding and maintenance tasks on the xfig drawing program using these tools. The paper reports on the experiences of the users of the Rigi reverse engineering tool suite. Rigi is an interactive, visual tool designed to help developers better understand and redocument their software. Rigi includes parsers to read the source code of the subject software and produce a graph of extracted artifacts such as procedures, variables, calls, and data accesses. To manage the complexity of the graph, an editor allows the software engineer to automatically or manually collapse related artifacts into subsystems. These subsystems typically represent concepts such as abstract data types or personnel assignments. The created hierarchy can be navigated, analyzed, and presented using various automatic or user-guided graphical layouts
