library for constructing (parsing and building) of binary and textual data structures

Project Description

ReConstruct is a continuation of the excellent ‘Construct’ library by Tomer Filiba <tomerfiliba [at] gmail dot com>. The original description is reproduced below. This version is maintained by Symbols <simplesymbols [at] gmail dot com>.

Original Description

Construct is a library for parsing and building of data structures (binary or textual).

The original description is It is based on the concept of defining data structures in a declarative manner, rather than procedural code: more complex constructs are composed of a hierarchy of simpler ones. It’s the first library that makes parsing fun, instead of the usual headache it is today.

Construct features bit and byte granularity, symmetrical operation (parsing and building), component-oriented design (declarative), easy debugging and testing, easy to extend (subclass constructs), and lots of primitive constructs to make your work easier (fields, structs, unions, repeaters, meta constructs, switches, on-demand parsing, pointers, etc.)
