NAME

afl-analyze - file format analyzer for American Fuzzy Lop (afl)

SYNOPSIS

afl-analyze [options] -- /path/to/target_app [...]

DESCRIPTION

afl-analyze takes an input file, attempts to sequentially flip bytes, and observes the behavior of the tested program. It then color-codes the input based on which sections appear to be critical, and which are not. While not bulletproof, it can often offer quick insights into complex file formats.
More info on this helper can be found in /usr/share/doc/afl-doc/docs/technical_details.txt.gz.
