This library implements Kaitai Struct API for Lua 5.3.
Kaitai Struct is a declarative language used for describe various binary data structures, laid out in files or in memory: i.e. binary file formats, network stream packet formats, etc.
You can clone the runtime library with Git:
git clone --recurse-submodules https://github.com/kaitai-io/kaitai_struct_lua_runtime.git
If you clone without
--recurse-submodules, the runtime library will work too, but you'll not be able to parse formats that use
process: zlib - calling
KaitaiStream.process_zlib will fail. If you need zlib support but the runtime was cloned without
git submodule update --init --recursive
Or if you want to add the runtime library to your project as a Git submodule:
git submodule add https://github.com/kaitai-io/kaitai_struct_lua_runtime.git [<path>] git submodule update --init --recursive
The second command is only required if you need support for
