Yeah. Should be fine. I'd have to go back and look.
I know reading in a regf file and writing out a new
file will work. I don't believe it will write a file
in place. That can be done but requires updating offsets
in the khey structure and there are rules IIRC about
values crossing an hbin boundary.
The best example code is in utils/net+rpc_registry.c
Look at the dump subcommand. And profiles.c as well.
Jelmer re-implemented teh parsing routines using
pidl in the SAMBA_4_0 branch and he's already mentioned
some of the tools.
