Crate dynasmrt[][src]

Expand description

This crate provides runtime support for dynasm-rs. It contains traits that document the interface used by the dynasm proc_macro to generate code, Assemblers that implement these traits, and relocation models for the various supported architectures. Additionally, it also provides the tools to write your own Assemblers using these components.


pub use crate::mmap::ExecutableBuffer;


Runtime support for the aarch64 architecture assembling target.

This module provides several reusable compoments for implementing assemblers

This module implements some wrappers around Mmap/MmapMut to also support a cheap “empty” variant.

This module defines the Relocation trait and several utilities for implementing relocations.

Runtime support for the x64 architecture assembling target.

Runtime support for the x86 architecture assembling target.


Preforms the same action as the Pointer! macro, but casts to a *mut pointer.

This macro takes a *const pointer from the source operand, and then casts it to the desired return type. this allows it to be used as an easy shorthand for passing pointers as dynasm immediate arguments.

The whole point. This macro compiles given assembly/rust templates down to DynasmApi and DynasmLabelApi compliant calls to an assembler.

Similar to dynasm!, but the calls to the assembler are executed in piecewise reversed order. This is to allow the system to be used with assemblers that assemble backwards. Currently this is not supported by the dynasmrt crate, but this allows experimentation with it out of tree.


A full assembler implementation. Supports labels, all types of relocations, incremental compilation and multithreaded execution with simultaneous compiltion. Its implementation guarantees no memory is executable and writable at the same time.

A struct representing an offset into the assembling buffer of a DynasmLabelApi struct. The wrapped usize is the offset from the start of the assembling buffer in bytes.

A dynamic label

A read-only shared reference to the executable buffer inside an Assembler. By locking it the internal ExecutableBuffer can be accessed and executed.

Allows modification of already committed assembly code. Contains an internal cursor into the emitted assembly, initialized to the start, that can be moved around either with the goto function, or just by assembling new code into this Modifier.

An assembler that is purely a Vec<u8>. It doesn’t support labels or architecture-specific directives, but can be used to easily inspect generated code. It is intended to be used in testcases.

This struct is a wrapper around an Assembler normally created using the Assembler.alter_uncommitted method. It allows the user to edit parts of the assembling buffer that cannot be determined easily or efficiently in advance. Due to limitations of the label resolution algorithms, this assembler does not allow labels to be used.

An assembler that assembles into a Vec<u8>, while supporting labels. To support the different types of relocations it requires a base address of the to be assembled code to be specified.


The various error types generated by dynasm functions.

A description of a label. Used for error reporting.

A description of a relocation target. Used for error reporting.


This trait represents the interface that must be implemented to allow the dynasm preprocessor to assemble into a datastructure.

This trait extends DynasmApi to not only allow assembling, but also labels and various directives

A trait abstracting over architectural register families. This is usually implemented over an enum of all available registers in each family. This allows for code that is generic over register families.
