I have a DLL with a large number of functions in IDA Pro. I would like to make a script that can scan the instructions within each of the functions looking for a specific instruction. For my specific case right now, I am looking for functions that shift left (shl). I am not sure which register is being shifted so I would like to keep it versatile. I do know that it is only shifting one place in this specific case.
I know python on a very basic level, and I know IDA-Python on a non-existent level. Please help me with suggestions on how to access this data inside IDA.
I have read through this question and it says that there is no direct access to the list of functions that have been discovered by IDA. You have to specify a starting function address. Is there any better way to list functions?
