Weekly Blog Post #10

Published: 09/17/2022

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 the week working on improving support for Python language parser based on the new API format and making adjustments to fix any bugs that emerged.

What is coming up next?

In the coming week I will work on improving documentation and tests for the language parsers.

Did I get stuck anywhere?

As requirements.txt doesn't always necessarily have frozen versions, I had to figure out ways to mock the installation process of the dependencies which in turn would provide me with the exact versions and required help from my mentors as to how to implement this.
