D-beaengine CI Status codecov

dbeaengine is a simple BeaEngine interface for the D programming language. The dbeaengine is an X86 and X8664 library that can be used to disassemble X86 and X8664 byte-code.

The programming interface is simple and easy (a single function named Disasm() ). Confer with the official website for more information.

This D binding doesn't add a layout over the original API but the enum, struct and their members names are more D-friendly. Additionally, safety is introduced by turning const every data set by Bea, which avoids any unintentional modification of the results.

Repository structure

  • \beaengine: contains the original C sources and the shell scripts to build beaengine as an object.
  • \example: contains two runnables samples, they can be run as dub scripts or as Coedit runnables.
  • \src: contains the d interface and a disassembler as library.
  • \objects: contains the *.obj and *.o objects generated for the C library, by format and by architecture.

Setup

generate the static library either with the DUB descirption or with the Coedit project (dbeaengine.ce).

Library disassembler.

Using the Coedit IDE, the module disassembler is amazingly easy to use and efficient when there is a need to directly see the code generated for a function. For example the following functions are disassembled in a single click thanks to Coedit runnable module system! This is a killer feature when you learn D or when there is a need to inspect the back-end production.

This feature is actually comparable to what the online disassemblers do.

Usage

the most simple example:

import std.stdio;
import disassembler;

void main(string[] args)
{
    writeln(prettyDisasm(&main, 2));
}

prints the code generated for __Dmain and its calls up to one level.

Other

  • tested under windows 32 bit, linux 32 bit and linux 64 bit.
  • original BeaEngine license: LGPL v3. see beaengine folder.
