I am setting up a global directory of computer forensics analysts, and am looking for feedback to the idea. Although the directory is in the UK, I want it to be global. Any thoughts, please put them on Computer Forensics [1] in the forums section. Thanks and regards, Simon

Given the lack of response I'm not sure this is a viable idea. Jessek 21:13, 26 February 2007 (PST)

Hachoir framework

Hi, I'm the author of Hachoir, a generic framework for binary file manipulation. I don't know if I can add it in your wiki. I prefer to have your review first :-)

Hachoir supports many file formats (more than 60 formats) and have many features:

* Fault tolerant parser (truncated/buggy file or buggy parser)
* Smart syntax: you don't have to care about endian or charset, and you can mix byte and bit fields
* Few functions to modify files
* File recognition using header/footer in a disk image (in any file) with few false positive (each file is checked using the parser)
* Written in Python: OS independant and easy to script/extend
* curses, wxWidgets and Gtk interfaces
* Many programs based on hachoir-core and hachoir-parser:
  * hachoir-strip: remove metadata and other "useless" informations
  * hachoir-grep: find substring in a binary file (using hachoir parsers: so search is Unicode aware)
  * hachoir-subfile: find all subfiles in a file
  * etc.
