Core of Hachoir framework: parse and edit binary files
Hachoir is a Python library used to represent of a binary file as a tree of Python objects. Each object has a type, a value, an address, etc. The goal is to be able to know the meaning of each bit in a file.
Why using slow Python code instead of fast hardcoded C code? Hachoir has many interresting features:
* Autofix: Hachoir is able to open invalid / truncated files * Lazy: Open a file is very fast since no information is read from file, data are read and/or computed when the user ask for it * Types: Hachoir has many predefined field types (integer, bit, string, etc.) and supports string with charset (ISO-8859-1, UTF-8, UTF-16, ...) * Addresses and sizes are stored in bit, so flags are stored as classic fields * Endian: You have to set endian once, and then number are converted in the right endian * Editor: Using Hachoir representation of data, you can edit, insert, remove data and then save in a new file.
