Introduction

The ppci (pure python compiler infrastructure) project is a compiler written entirely in python.

The project contains:

An example usage of the low level encoding api:

>>> from ppci.arch.x86_64 import instructions, registers
>>> i = instructions.Pop(registers.rbx)
>>> i.encode()
b'['

Another example:

>>> import io
>>> from ppci.api import asm
>>> source_file = io.StringIO("""section code
... pop rbx
... push r10
... mov rdi, 42""")
>>> obj = asm(source_file, 'x86_64')
>>> obj.get_section('code').data
bytearray(b'[ARH\xbf*\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00')

And yet another example:

>>> import io
>>> from ppci.api import c3c, link
>>> source_file = io.StringIO("""
...  module main;
...  function void print(string txt) { }
...  function void main() { print("Hello world"); }
... """)
>>> obj = c3c([source_file], [], 'arm')
>>> obj = link([obj])

Warning

This project is in alpha state and not ready for production use!
