Classes and utilities for packing/unpacking bytes.
[plum] Pack/Unpack Memory¶
The plum-py Python package provides classes and utility functions to
efficiently pack and unpack bytes similar to what the standard library
struct module offers. This package expands significantly on that
capability with much more powerful and convenient access and control of
bytes within a buffer (including handling variable size/type
relationships within the buffer data).
The package provides a large number of fundamental types (e.g. numbers, structures, arrays, etc.) for specifying buffer data structure. Each type conforms to a “plug-and-play” architecture facilitating the ability to be combined in any way, including deeply nested structures of arbitrary type. You may also write your own custom types that conform to the “plug-and-play” architecture API and use them in combination with any of the fundamental types provided.
