Function Documentation

THREAD_SAFE void append_eavec ( bytevec_t v,
ea_t  ea,
const eavec_t insns 
)
inline

Pack an eavec and append the result to the bytevec.

Also see unpack_eavec().

Parameters
voutput vector
eawhen we pack an eavec, we only store the differences between each value and this parameter.
This is because groups of ea values will likely be similar, and therefore the differences will usually be small.
A good example is packing the addresses of a function prologue.
One can pass the start ea of the function as this parameter, which results in a quick and efficient packing/unpacking.
(Just be sure to use the func's start ea when unpacking, of course)
