Hachoir project- hachoir parser

a package of the most common file format parsers written using hachoir-core.

hachoir-parser is a package of the most common file format parsers written for the Hachoir framework. Not all parsers are complete, some are very good and other less so: for example some only parser the first level of the tree. A perfect parser has no "raw" field: with a perfect parser you are able to know *each* bit meaning. Some good (but not perfect ;-)) parsers are:

  • Matroska video
  • Microsoft RIFF (AVI video, WAV audio, CDA file)
  • PNG picture
  • TAR and ZIP archive
  • GnomeKeyring parser requires Python Crypto module.
