Python bindings for pin.
Pre-requisite is python-dev
sudo apt-get install python-dev on Ubuntu.
Download and extract Pin from https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/pintool-downloads
Copy the entire directory into ~/pin/source/tools
Type make and enjoy!
Using the Extension
Most of pin's functionality is exposed via the
pin module, internal to the pintool. Its implementation is very similar to the way gdb handles python extensions.
To run a specific python script, for example the strace script:
../../../pin -t obj-intel64/Python_Pin.so -m examples/strace.py -- /bin/ls
Some Python modules are compiled as shared objects without symbols. These modules can't be loaded from within the python pin tool. (solution is to either not use those modules, or have a custom build of python alongside the pintool)
Need to work on compiling for Mac and
Windows(check the branch Windows is supported). Code should be portable but makefile may need to be updated.
