NAME

       srec_needham - Needham EMP-series programmer ASCII file format

DESCRIPTION

       This   format   is   understood   by  Needham  Electronics’  EMP-series
       programmers.  See  www.needhams.com/winman.pdf  for  more  information.
       (This  format  is very similar to the ASCII-Hex format, but without the
       ^B and ^C guard characters.)

       Each data byte is represented  as  2  hexadecimal  characters,  and  is
       separated by white space from all other data bytes.

       The  address  for  data  bytes  is  set  by using a sequence of $Annnn,
       characters, where nnnn is the 8-character ascii representation  of  the
       address.   The  comma  is  required.   There  is no need for an address
       record unless there are gaps.  Implicitly, the file starts a address  0
       if no address is set before the first data byte.

   Size Multiplier
       In general, binary data will expand in sized by approximately 3.0 times
       when represented with this format.

EXAMPLE

       Here is an example ascii-hex  file.   It  contains  the  data  ‘‘Hello,
       World’’ to be loaded at address 0x1000.
              $A1000,
              48 65 6C 6C 6F 2C 20 57 6F 72 6C 64 0A
