A compiled program doesn't have C++ Code. As it's got many characters which
be misinterpreted by a normal ASCII editor you have to view it in hex mode.
can use the editor of mc (midnight commander) for instance to view it in hex
But what you'll see won't be very informational.
You would have to disassemble the file to be able to really 'read' it.
