ACPICA tools for the development and debug of ACPI tables

https://www.acpica.org/

The ACPI Component Architecture (ACPICA) project provides an OS-independent
reference implementation of the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface
Specification (ACPI).  ACPICA code contains those portions of ACPI meant to
be directly integrated into the host OS as a kernel-resident subsystem, and
a small set of tools to assist in developing and debugging ACPI tables.

This package contains only the user-space tools needed for ACPI table
development, not the kernel implementation of ACPI.  The following commands
are installed:
   -- iasl: compiles ASL (ACPI Source Language) into AML (ACPI Machine
      Language), suitable for inclusion as a DSDT in system firmware.
      It also can disassemble AML, for debugging purposes.
   -- acpibin: performs basic operations on binary AML files (e.g.,
      comparison, data extraction)
   -- acpidump: write out the current contents of ACPI tables
   -- acpiexec: simulate AML execution in order to debug method definitions
   -- acpihelp: display help messages describing ASL keywords and op-codes
   -- acpinames: display complete ACPI name space from input AML
   -- acpisrc: manipulate the ACPICA source tree and format source files
      for specific environments
   -- acpixtract: extract binary ACPI tables from acpidump output (see
      also the pmtools package)

This version of the tools is being released under GPLv2 license.
