Binary File Schema ================== http://www.andersriggelsen.dk/binaryfileschema.php Executable file here: http://www.andersriggelsen.dk/files/fileschema/BinaryFileSchemaGUI.zip Binary File Schemas is a project of mine that will allow you to define the structure of various binary files. There are quite a lot of uses for this: * Easy to explain the structure of binary files to other people * Create programs that can inspect any binary file given a schema * Automatically generate a parser directly from a schema * Extend application functionality (eg. allow Google Desktop Search to search virtually any file if you have schemas for them) * Make compression/diff programs content-aware to maximize speed and accuracy. * Binary File Schemas' syntax include basic validation and computation functionality. Features so far --------------- * Structures - ordered list of data * Offset structures - data stored at other places at either relative or absolute offsets to the read value * Enums - limited set of possible values * Bitfields - fields containing a bunch of flags * Arrays - of both constant, calculated and unknown lengths (with multiple stop clauses) * Compression - Automatically handles compressed structures of data (C# generator supports GZip and Deflate) The aim is not to be able to express all kinds of binary files but at least attempt to express most types of formats in a simple syntax.
