This is a simple library for parsing hex files. Currently only intel hex files are supported.
You can use the included setup.py or use your pip to install it from PyPI
To create a HexFile object use hexfile.load:
import hexfile f = hexfile.load('memory.hex')
HexFile object is composed of one or more memory segments, which may be discontinuous. You can access the contents of the hex file as though it were an array of bytes:
print f.size # Total number of bytes in the hexfile (NOT the total span of all addresses) byte = f # Returns the byte at address 16 (as an int) bytes = f[256:512] # Returns 256 bytes as a list print f.segments # Display all the segments in the hex file
HexFile object also supports iteration, but rather than iterating over byte values as if it were a list, it includes the byte addresses, as if it were enumerated. This is because the file might be discontinuous, so addresses are frequently needed during iteration.
for addr, data in f: print '0x%08x : 0x%02x' % (addr, data) # Print every byte in the hex file and its 32-bit address
