Direct Access Dictionary

This acts like a dict, but it provides a direct attribute access to its keys through its values. This is used to store protocols, manuf…

For instance, scapy fields will use a DADict as an enum:

ETHER_TYPES[2048] -> IPv4

Whereas humans can access:

ETHER_TYPES.IPv4 -> 2048
ident(v: _V) str[source]

Return value that is used as key for the direct access

iterkeys() Iterator[_K][source]
itervalues() Iterator[_V][source]
