Language-independent binary packet structure specification

Project Description

A language-independent, platform-neutral way of specifying binary packet structures.

Introduction

Imagine you’re working in a multiple-person project that makes use of more than one language and perhaps spans multiple hardware platforms, and that you need to pass binary packets across different components. When these components are owned by the same developer, reside on the same hardware, and are written in the same language, it’s not a problem. When one or more of these assertions is no longer true it becomes more problematic. It becomes worse still when the formats of these packets change, and the more they change the worse it gets.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have an easy, neutral way to specify the formats of these binary structures and have some basic tools help do some of the grunt work with them in different languages so that when they change it doesn’t cause everything everywhere to break?

That’s what structspec is all about.
