Domain Specific Language(DSL) for parsing and mapping binary data to python objects

Project Description
# Binmapper

Python package for mapping objects to binary data.
It works with Python 2.7+

## Installation

Binmapper is available from and can be installed using pip

pip install binmapper

## Example usage


import binmapper
import textwrap

definition = u"""\
bintype BinX:
field: uint8
bintype Bin:
fieldX: BinX
definition = textwrap.dedent(definition)
binmap = binmapper.compile(definition)
bin = binmap.Bin()
input = io.BytesIO("\x01")

## Data types

Type | Byte Size | Description
uint8 | 1 | Unsigned byte
uint16 | 2 | Unsigned short
uint32 | 4 | Unsigned short
sint8 | 1 | Signed byte
sint16 | 2 | Signed short
sint32 | 4 | Signed word
float | 4 | Floating point with single-precision
string | n | String
array | n | Array

## Common class template


bintype CLASS_NAME:

## Fields

## Byteorder

Value | Description
littlendian | Increasing numeric significance with increasing memory addresses
bigendian | Decreasing numeric significance with increasing memory addresses

Byteorder can be specified 3-way

- Field attribute

`field: uint8 &byteorder=littlendian`

Apply only to field

- BinType attribute

field: uint8

Apply to all fields in BinType, except having attribute byteorder

- Parse argument

bin.parse(input, byteorder='littlendian')

Apply to all parsed data, except having attribute byteorder or BinType byteorder

Byteorder apply order:

`field byteorder > class byteorder > parse byteorder`

## Class Usage

## Array Usage

## String Usage

## Let Field Usage

## Change elements in runtime
