NAME

       acpidump - ACPI table dump utility

SYNOPSIS

       acpidump [<option>...]

DESCRIPTION

       This  manual  page  briefly documents the acpidump command.  The option list is taken from
       the interactive help.

       The acpidump command extracts the ACPI tables currently in use from the running kernel  in
       a form usable for later processing by the acpixtract command.

       Invocation  of  acpidump without parameters will dump all available ACPI tables.  Multiple
       mixed instances of the -a , -f , and -n parameters can be used.

OPTIONS

       -b     Dump tables in binary format (versus the default human-readable form)

       -h | -?
              Display this help message

       -o <file>
              Redirect output to a file.  This file can be used later by  acpixtract  to  examine
              the contents of the ACPI tables.

       -s     Print table summaries only.

       -v     Print the version of this utility.

       -z     Verbose mode.

       -a <address>
              Get  a  table  from  a  physical address (must be superuser and you must be careful
              which address you use -- dmesg will typically report the addresses for the  various
              tables).

       -f <binary-file>
              Get a table from a binary file (see the -b option).

       -n <signature>
              Get a table via it's name or signature (e.g., MADT or SSDT).
