Paper Articles

Python projects

  • astoptimizer: experimental optimizer for Python code working on the Abstract Syntax Tree (AST, high-level representration). It does as much work as possible at compile time.
  • Fusil: Fusil is a Python library used to write fuzzing programs. It includes fuzzers for Firefox, ClamAV, Mplayer, Python, etc. I am no more working actively on the project, but it still works.
  • pysandbox: Sandbox to run untrusted Python code. Project stopped because it is broken by design.
  • python-ipy: Python classes and tools for handling of IPv4 and IPv6 addresses and networks. I don’t need this module anymore and so I am no more interested to maintain it, the new maintainer is Jeff Ferland aka autocracy. Python 3.3 now includes ipaddress, a concurrent module to handle IP addresses and networks.
  • registervm: My fork of Python 3.3 using register-based bytecode, instead of stack-code bytecode. Read REGISTERVM.txt
  • python-ptrace: Python binding of ptrace library to debug processes on UNIX and BSD.

Other projects

  • Hasard: pseudo-random number generator (PRNG) library.
  • Hachoir: Python library that allows to view and edit a binary stream field by field. In other words, Hachoir allows you to “browse” any binary stream just like you browse directories and files. A file is split in a tree of fields, where the smallest field is just one bit.
  • Warmux, previously known as “Wormux”: Open source clone of the famous 2D game “Worms” by Team17.
  • macfly: tool allowing to run one or more programs with a shifted clock compared to system clock. project written at INL for the french CNES (National Centre for Space Studies)
  • happyboom (project deleted): Prototype of a library to write a turn-based game, it is mostly a network protocol.
  • HaypoCALC: A formal calculator in text terminal. Existing functions : ln,lg, basen, gcd, lcm, ncr, npr, factor(int), cos,sin,tan, acos,asin,atan, derive,taylor, ... Work on Linux and Windows, programmed in C++.

Workshops Lolut

Dans le cadre du club Lolut auquel j’appartiens, j’ai organisé plusieurs ateliers :


I like programming. I started with examples copy-pasted manually from the magazine “Science & Vie Junior”, programs written in “Basic” (Microsoft Quick Basic).

Then I moved forward with the programming language “Pascal” (avec Turbo Pascal 7), completed with assembler Intel x86 (Borland Turbo Assembleur 1 and 2).

The other major change was the move to the object oriented programming (OOP) with Borland C++ Builder and short tests with gcc on MS-DOS (it didn’t work well). When I started to study at UTBM (engineer school), I switched from Windows to Linux because the 4 computers running Linux were always available and I didn’t thave the Internet at home.

I learnt HTML and XHTML (completed with Javascript), then PHP, and finally XML + XSLT + CSS. I learnt some Java at school, and Python at home.

I also developed with Visual Basic and Delphi, but I didn’t do anything interesting with them.
