This new version has many new features and options.
First there is the remainder (*) when using option -f to specify a parsing format.
For example, -f “<i25s” directs format-bytes to interpret the provided data as a little-endian integer followed by a 25-byte long string:
With the remainder (-f “<i25s*”), format-bytes will provide info for the remaining bytes (if any) after parsing (e.g. after the 25-byte long string):
Options -c and -s changed ito -C and -S, so that option -s can be used to select items (to be consistent across my tools).
Option -s can be used to select an item, like a string, to be dumped (options -a, -x and -d). If no dump option is provided, an hex-ascii dump (-a) is the default.
And option –jsoninput can be used to process JSON output produced by oledump.py or zipdump.py, for example.
