pe-parser

Lua module to parse a Portable Executable (.exe , .dll, etc.) file and extract metadata. The implementation is far from complete, but it works for the basics. It was developed to check 32/64bit-ness of a binary and imported dll's. Documentation is available in LDoc format, in the doc directory.

A commandline script is available, also by the name of pe-parser. Use pe-parser -help for information on the usage of this utility.

Limitations

It uses regular Lua numbers (for file seeking), so for really large files it will not work properly because Lua numbers cannot hold 64bit integers. Generally this is not an issue as executable files don't tend to be that big. All numbers returned will be as hex formatted strings, so 64bit flag fields can be processed correctly.
