    An impish, cross-platform binary parsing crate, written in Rust (by m4b)

    For now the minidump creation is a fairly faithful port of the Breakpad code, but like I said some of that code is really old, so there's probably cases where taking a step back and rethinking the approach based on new kernel or OS capabilities or, instead of recreating process snapshotting for each non-Windows, just have a really good parser for each OSes crash format that does a transform. Rust is a fantastic language for writing those kinds of parsers, so that would definitely be an interesting avenue to investigate, especially since in the Linux case a lot of groundwork has already been done by goblin.
