i'm new here on this board. I want to code an Offset converter in Delphi. There is only one problem!! How can I calculate the section from the RVA or from the VA?

(sections .text, .data, .idata ....)

google,google,google & google and you know all.

first start with what is RVA what VA, then download PE format file aroung 100kb txt, then read what is virtual offset and what is raw offset. and then think what you want to do, convert from file or memory, in memory all is dependent on imagebase, in file all is dependent on raw offset, but not always:P due if exe is packed, protected it can have 3 sections but all 3 have raw offset 0, due they are merged and unpacked to right place by stub

Hello [n]ewcom3R:

Here I expose a way to implement this:

You load all sections data in an array of record like the following:

TypeSection = record
rvirt_off : Cardinal;
raw_size : Cardinal;
sec : array of TypeSection;
rvirt_addr, virt_addr : Cardinal; // RVA and VA addresses
imagebase : Cardinal;
i, numsec : Integer;begin
... some lines of code, where you extract numsec, imagebase and load in sec PE header values
rvirt_addr := virt_addr - imagebase; for i := 0 to numsec - 1 do
if (rvirt_addr >= sec [i].rvirt_off) AND (rvirt_addr < (sec [i].rvirt_off + sec [i].raw_size)) then

i + 1 yields as the counter of section where RVA is (remember that you have used a dinamic array whose first element is sec [0]).

The code of above is not complete, you will need to implement the opening and closing of the file to read the PE header of the file, they are just a few lines more.

If you need more details just let me know...

Well, as i see human has done a nice job by advicing you :P

and Nacho-dj gave you nice tips the only thing left is to ask do

you know anything about PE format ?? is a good question you know !!

if you don't or at least not that good try reading a few tutorials about it

there are 3 of my favorite 1) Recardo Narvaja , 2) Yates , 3) Goppit

they can be found on web and google too it's nice to have a more

information than you need trust me it's great ;)

Cheer To All
