Class LanguageTranslatorFactory

  • public class LanguageTranslatorFactory
    extends java.lang.Object
    LanguageTranslatorFactory manages all language translators within Ghidra. Language translators support either a version translation for a single language, or a language transition from one language to another. The following types of translators are supported:
    • Simple translators are established based upon a translator XML specification file (*.trans).
    • Explicit translators are class implementations of the LanguageTranslator interface. The abstract LanguageTranslatorAdapter has been supplied for this purpose so that default mappings can be used if needed. Such custom translator classes should not be created within the 'ghidra.program.util' package since they will be ignored by the factory.
    • Default translators can be instantiated for languages whose address spaces map to one-another. Such default translations may be lossy with register mappings and could result in lost register variables and references.
