The SRecord package is a collection of powerful tools for manipulating
EPROM load files.
- The SRecord package understands a number of file formats: Motorola
S-Record, Intel, Tektronix, Binary. These file formats may be read
and written. Also C array definitions, for output only.
- The SRecord package has a number of tools: srec_cat for copying and
and converting files, srec_cmp for comparing files and srec_info for
- The SRecord package has a number for filters: checksum to add checksums
to the data, crop to keep address ranges, exclude to remove address
ranges, fill to plug holes in the data, length to insert the data
length, maximum to insert the data address maximum, minimum to insert
the data address minimum, offset to adjust addresses, and split for
wide data buses and memory striping.
More than one filter may be applied to each input file. Different filters
may be applied to each input file. All filters may be applied to all
