Capstone disassembly engine

Project description

NOTE: This package includes prebuilt Windows core of Capstone, so no external
Capstone library is needed.

On Windows, download this PyPi package and run "python install" from
"Command Prompt" is all you need to install it.

If you want to compile everything from source code instead, use the
PyPi package "capstone" instead.


Capstone is a disassembly framework with the target of becoming the ultimate
disasm engine for binary analysis and reversing in the security community.

Created by Nguyen Anh Quynh, then developed and maintained by a small community,
Capstone offers some unparalleled features:

- Support multiple hardware architectures: ARM, ARM64 (ARMv8), Mips, PPC, Sparc,
SystemZ, XCore and X86 (including X86_64).

- Having clean/simple/lightweight/intuitive architecture-neutral API.

- Provide details on disassembled instruction (called “decomposer” by others).

- Provide semantics of the disassembled instruction, such as list of implicit
registers read & written.

- Implemented in pure C language, with lightweight wrappers for C++, C#, Go,
Java, NodeJS, Ocaml, Python, Ruby & Vala ready (available in main code,
or provided externally by the community).

- Native support for all popular platforms: Windows, Mac OSX, iOS, Android,
Linux, *BSD, Solaris, etc.

- Thread-safe by design.

- Special support for embedding into firmware or OS kernel.

- High performance & suitable for malware analysis (capable of handling various
X86 malware tricks).

- Distributed under the open source BSD license.
