Weekly Blog Post #1

Hello! My name is Anant Vijay, a sophomore pursuing Computer Science and Engineering. I will be adding support for improving the detection capabilities for CVE Binary Tool during Google Summer of Code 2022.

What did I do this week?

I spent most of the week going through the currently existing parsers in extreme detail in order to find out the common factors so that I could abstract those away, I discussed my findings with the mentors and finally came up with a very basic bare bones structure for what the parent parser class should look like.

What is coming up next?

In the coming week I will be finalizing the structure of the parser class for the time being based on my findings, and as suggested by my mentors will also be refactoring an existing parser to the new format as a proof of concept and for testing.

Did I get stuck anywhere?

I did not get stuck anywhere this week and was able to handle everything easily.
