memoffset 0.2.1

offset_of functionality for Rust structs.


C-Like offset_of functionality for Rust structs.

Introduces the following macros:

  • offset_of! for obtaining the offset of a member of a struct.
  • span_of! for obtaining the range that a field, or fields, span.

memoffset works under no_std environments.


Add the following dependency to your Cargo.toml:

memoffset = "0.2"

Add the following lines at the top of your or files.

extern crate memoffset;


#[repr(C, packed)]
struct Foo {
	a: u32,
	b: u32,
	c: [u8; 5],
	d: u32,

assert_eq!(offset_of!(Foo, b), 4);
assert_eq!(offset_of!(Foo, c[3]), 11);

assert_eq!(span_of!(Foo, a),          0..4);
assert_eq!(span_of!(Foo, a ..  c),    0..8);
assert_eq!(span_of!(Foo, a ..  c[1]), 0..9);
assert_eq!(span_of!(Foo, a ..= c[1]), 0..10);
assert_eq!(span_of!(Foo, ..= d),      0..14);
assert_eq!(span_of!(Foo, b ..),       4..17);
