AI suggested IDAPython.
I don't have the intention to use IDAPython any more, since GPL tools are 10-100 times faster (!), they don't give timeouts due to demo restrictions, and they don't crash as often. Also, no more floating point errors when importing SymPy!
The GPL Tools/ARM console script includes a small compatibility layer for IDAPython. Not 100% compatible, but it helps porting existing scripts quite a bit.
This page will remain as a starting point for anyone who wants to try IDAPython. </Notice>
How to decode an instruction, call an IDC function...
Just a bit beyond the basics
This is going to be similar to Brainfuck :)
... how about a Brainfuck decompiler in SymPy?
My experimental code is here. Feel free to improve it.
