Simple construction, analysis and modification of binary data.
bitstring is a pure Python module designed to help make the creation and analysis of binary data as painless as possible.
BitString objects can be constructed from integers, hexadecimal, octal, binary, strings or files. They can be sliced, joined, reversed, inserted into, overwritten, etc. with simple functions or slice notation. They can also be read from, searched, and navigated in, similar to a file or stream.
To install run the setup.py script with the ‘install’ argument:
python setup.py install
This should put bitstring.py in your site-packages directory. You may need to run this with root privileges on Unix-like systems.
Alternatively just copy the bitstring.py file to where you want it!
If you’re using Windows then there is an installer available from the downloads tab on the project’s homepage.
To run the unit tests:
The unit tests should all pass for Python 2.4, 2.5 and 2.6.
