vstruct2 2.0.2

Vivisect Structure Definition/Parsing Library

vstruct2 ( Mark II )
===================

Vivisect Structure Definition/Parsing Library
|Build Status|

Installing
==========

.. code::

python3.4 -m pip install vstruct2

vstruct2 can now be installed via pip!

Additionally, a repository of existing structure definitions
is available as a seperate package named fracture.

Examples
========

Basic Parsing
-------------

Simple vstruct2 byte parsing:

.. code:: python

from vstruct2.types import *

class Foo(VStruct):

def __init__(self):
VStruct.__init__(self)
self.bar = uint32()
self.baz = vbytes(20)


foo = Foo()

# read in byts from somewhere...
foo.vsParse(byts)

# access struct fields by name
if foo.bar == 30:
print('bar == 30!')

# assign fields by name
foo.bar = 90

# emit modified bytes back out
byts = bytes(foo) # same as foo.vsEmit()

Parser Callbacks
----------------

WriteBack Bytes/Files
---------------------

vstruct2 supports "writeback" functionality for both files and mutable
bytearray types, allowing field assignments to change the underlying file
or bytearray immediately.

.. code:: python

class Foo(VStruct):

def __init__(self):
VStruct.__init__(self)
self.bar = uint32()
self.baz = uint32()


foo = Foo()

# ba is a bytearray
foo.vsParse(ba, writeback=True)

# if bar is 30, set baz to 99
if foo.bar == 30:
foo.baz = 99

# ba bytearray has now been modified
