NAME

Python::Bytecode::SAX - Process Python bytecode, generating SAX events.

SYNOPSIS

  use Python::Bytecode::SAX;
  use XML::SAX::Writer;
  my $handler = XML::SAX::Writer->new( Output => 'foo.xml' );
  my $parser = Python::Bytecode::SAX->new( Handler => $handler, SAX => 2 );
  $parser->parse_file('foo.pyc');

Or

  use Python::Bytecode::SAX;
  use XML::Handler::YAWriter;
  my $handler = XML::Handler::YAWriter->new(
      AsFile => 'foo.xml',
      Pretty  => {
          CompactAttrIndent  => 1,
          PrettyWhiteIndent  => 1,
          PrettyWhiteNewline => 1,
          CatchEmptyElement  => 1
      }
  );
  my $parser = Python::Bytecode::SAX->new( Handler => $handler, SAX => 1 );
  $parser->parse_file('foo.pyc');

DESCRIPTION

This module reads and decodes a Python bytecode file, generating SAX1 or SAX2 events (SAX1 is the default) for what it finds.

Until more documentation is written, you can examine the two XML files generated in the t/ directory by make test to get a feel for the overal structure and the element and attribute names.

HISTORY

Based on the Python::Bytecode module by Simon Cozens <simon@cpan.org>, which is based on the dis.py file in the Python Standard Library.
