How to be angry

This is a collection of documentation for angr. By reading this, you'll become an angr pro and will be able to fold binaries to your whim.

We've tried to make using angr as pain-free as possible - our goal is to create a user-friendly binary analysis suite, allowing a user to simply start up iPython and easily perform intensive binary analyses with a couple of commands. That being said, binary analysis is complex, which makes angr complex. This documentation is an attempt to help out with that, providing narritive explanation and exploration of angr and its design.

Get Started
