pefile For Mac Publisher's description
from Ero Carrera
pefile is a multi-platform Python module to read and work with Portable Executable (aka PE) files.
pefile is a multi-platform Python module to read and work with Portable Executable (aka PE) files. Most of the information in the PE Header is accessible, as well as all the sections, section's information and data.
pefile requires some basic understanding of the layout of a PE file. Armed with it it's possible to explore nearly every single feature of the file.
Some of the tasks that pefile makes possible are:
* Modifying and writing back to the PE image
* Header Inspection
* Sections analysis
* Retrieving data
* Warnings for suspicious and malformed values
* Packer detection with PEiDвЂ™s signatures
* PEiD signature generation
