Version 4.0.2, May 8, 2020
Capstone is a lightweight multi-platform, multi-architecture disassembly framework.
Our target is to make Capstone the ultimate disassembly engine for binary analysis and reversing in the security community.
Multi-architectures: Arm, Arm64 (Armv8), BPF, Ethereum Virtual Machine, M68K, M680X, Mips, MOS65XX, PowerPC, RISCV, Sparc, SystemZ, TMS320C64X, Web Assembly, XCore & X86 (include X86_64) (details).
Clean/simple/lightweight/intuitive architecture-neutral API.
Provide details on disassembled instruction (called “decomposer” by some others).
Provide some semantics of the disassembled instruction, such as list of implicit registers read & written.
Implemented in pure C language, with bindings for D, Clojure, F#, Common Lisp, Visual Basic, PHP, PowerShell, Haskell, Perl, Python, Ruby, C#, NodeJS, Java, GO, C++, OCaml, Lua, Rust, Delphi, Free Pascal & Vala available.
Native support for Windows & *nix (with Mac OSX, iOS, Android, Linux, *BSD & Solaris confirmed).
Thread-safe by design.
Special support for embedding into firmware or OS kernel.
High performance & suitable for malware analysis (capable of handling various X86 malware tricks).
Distributed under the open source BSD license.
