This page gives an overview of the library and tools to get you started.
$ pip install retdec-python
This will install the latest stable version, including all dependencies. You can also install the latest development version directly from GitHub:
$ pip install git+https://github.com/s3rvac/retdec-python
Be careful not to disclose your API key to anyone! You have to keep it a secret.
Library vs Scripts¶
retdec-python provides both a Python library and scripts. You can either incorporate the library in your own scripts:
from retdec.decompiler import Decompiler decompiler = Decompiler(api_key='YOUR-API-KEY') decompilation = decompiler.start_decompilation(input_file='file.exe') decompilation.wait_until_finished() decompilation.save_hll_code()
or you can use the provided scripts for stand-alone file analyses or decompilations:
$ decompiler -k YOUR-API-KEY file.exe v23bmYb67R ---------- Waiting for resources (0%)... [OK] Pre-Processing: Obtaining file information (5%)... [OK] Unpacking (10%)... [OK] Front-End: Initializing (20%)... [OK] [..] Done (100%)... Downloading: - file.c
file.c then contains the decompiled C code:
$ cat file.c // // This file was generated by the Retargetable Decompiler // Website: https://retdec.com // Copyright (c) 2016 Retargetable Decompiler <email@example.com> // #include <stdio.h> [..]
