In this paper, we describe the reengineering of a deteriorated object-oriented industrial program written in C++. The main problem of the program was misplaced code, most often functions that were members of the wrong class. In order to deal with this problem, we designed and implemented several restructuring tools and used them in specific reengineering scenarios. We also discuss how this set of tools could be enhanced in the future, and the importance of restructuring for object-oriented software maintenance.
