Radare - The Reverse Engineering Framework

Thursday, November 13, 2014


r2 is a rewrite from scratch of radare in order to provide a set of libraries and tools to work with binary files
This is the rewrite of radare (1.x branch) to provide a framework with a set of libraries and programs to work with binary data.

Radare project started as a forensics tool, an scriptable commandline hexadecimal editor able to open disk files, but later support for analyzing binaries, disassembling code, debugging programs, attaching to remote gdb servers, ..

radare2 is portable.
