Currently I develop for me in python 3.4 a utility to read a dump file. Unfortunately, I do not know the format of the binary file, no problem following data type. 
If it is legal, is it possible to have the file format Dump Windows to finish my utility. 
thank you

"dump" has many meanings. The most common would be a simple memory snapshot of a process, in which case the format is going to be dictated by whatever the program from which the dump was taken wants the format to be.

What is your overall scenario? (e.g. what are you trying to accomplish by reading or writing a dump?)
