wasmparser 0.35.3

A simple event-driven library for parsing WebAssembly binary files.

The WebAssembly binary file decoder in Rust

Build Status crates.io link

The decoder library provides lightwight and fast decoding/parsing of WebAssembly binary files.

The other goal is minimal memory footprint. For this reason, there is no AST or IR of WebAssembly data.

use wasmparser::WasmDecoder;

fn get_name(bytes: &[u8]) -> &str {

fn main() {
  let ref buf: Vec<u8> = read_wasm_bytes();
  let mut parser = Parser::new(buf);
  loop {
    let state = parser.read();
    match *state {
        ParserState::BeginWasm { .. } => {
            println!("====== Module");
        ParserState::ExportSectionEntry { field, ref kind, .. } => {
            println!("  Export {} {:?}", get_name(field), kind);
        ParserState::ImportSectionEntry { module, field, .. } => {
            println!("  Import {}::{}", get_name(module), get_name(field))
        ParserState::EndWasm => break,
        _ => ( /* println!(" Other {:?}", state) */ )


To fuzz test wasmparser.rs, switch to a nightly Rust compiler and install cargo-fuzz:

cargo install cargo-fuzz

Then, from the root of the repository, run:

cargo fuzz run parse

If you want to use files as seeds for the fuzzer, add them to fuzz/corpus/parse/ and restart cargo-fuzz.
