Kaitai Struct declarative parser generator for binary data: runtime library for Python

Project Description
# Kaitai Struct: runtime library for Python

This library implements Kaitai Struct API for Python.

[Kaitai Struct](http://kaitai.io) is a declarative language used for
describe various binary data structures, laid out in files or in memory:
i.e. binary file formats, network stream packet formats, etc.

It is similar to Python's [construct] and [Construct3], but it is
language-agnostic. The format description is done in YAML-based .ksy
format, which then can be compiled into a wide range of target languages.

[construct]: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/construct
[Construct3]: http://tomerfiliba.com/blog/Survey-of-Construct3/
