OpenRCE IDA SDK >> load_binary_file

load_binary_file
Category: IDB

idaman bool ida_export
load_binary_file(const char *filename, linput_t *li,
ushort _neflags, long fileoff, ea_t basepara, ea_t binoff, ulong nbytes);
Load a binary file *li, named *filename starting at offset, fileoff. _nflags is any of the NEF_ flags defined in loader.hpp. nbytes specifies the number of bytes to load from the file, or 0 for the whole file. basepara is the paragraph where this new binary will be loaded, and binoff is the offset within that segment. You can safely set basepara to the adress you want the file loaded at, and set binoff to 0. Returns false if the load failed.

This is not the function you would use for loading a DLL or executable file (a PE file for instance) into the IDB. For that, you would use use load_loader_module() above.

Examples:
#include <kernwin.hpp> // For askfile_cv()
#include <diskio.hpp>  // For open_linput()
#include <loader.hpp>

// Ask the user for a filename
char *file = askfile_cv(0, "", "DLL file..", NULL);

// Create a linput_t instance for that file
linput_t *li = open_linput(file, false);

// Load the file at the end of the currently loaded file (inf.maxEA).
bool status = load_binary_file(file, li, NEF_SEGS, 0, inf.maxEA, 0, 0);

if (status)
    msg("Successfully loaded %s at %a\n", file, inf.maxEA);
else
    msg("Failed to load file.\n");
