NAME

       srec_fastload - LSI Logic Fast Load file format

DESCRIPTION

       The  FastLoad  Format uses a compressed ASCII format that permits files
       to be downloaded in less than half  the  time  taken  for  Motorola  S-
       records.

       The  base-64  encoding  used  is  "A-Za-z0-9,.". The data is encoded in
       groups of 4 characters (3 bytes, 24 bits).

       The character ’/’ is used to introduce  a  special  function.   Special
       functions are:

       Annnnnn Defines an address.

       Bnn     Define a single byte.

       Cnnnn   Compare  the  checksums.   The  checksum  is  a simple positive
               16-bit sum, of the data bytes only.

       EAA     Define the program’s entry point.   The  address  will  be  the
               current address as defined by the A command.  (The AA number in
               this command is ignored.)  This must be the last entry  in  the
               file.

       KAA     Clear  the  checksum.   (The  AA  number  in  this  command  is
               ignored.)

       Sname,X Define a symbol.  The address of the symbol will be the current
               address as defined by the A command.

       Znn     Clear a number of bytes.

   Size Multiplier
       In general, binary data will expand in sized by approximately 1.4 times
       when represented with this format.

EXAMPLE

       Here is an example LSI Logic Fast Load format file.   It  contains  the
       data ‘‘Hello, World’’ to be loaded at address 0.
