              card

       -d (debug)
              Do all processing, excluding card PDA read but do not  write  to

IMAGEFILE OPTIONS

       -r <file> (ram)
              Load SREC file to  card  RAM.   This  option  may  be  specified
              multiple  times.  If the value is "stdin", the file will be read
              from stdin and the option may only be specified once.

       -f <file> (flash)
              Load SREC file to card  FLASH.  This  option  may  be  specified
              multiple  times.  If the value is "stdin", the file will be read
              from stdin and the option may only be specified once.

PDA OPTIONS

       -a <file> (addpdr)
              Add the PDRs from file to the PDA from card. This option may  be
              specified multiple times.

       -p <file> (pda)
              Replace the card PDA with the contents of file.

       -m <haddr> (macaddr)
              Overwrite  the MAC address PDR with the given value.  <addr> ::=
              xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx, where xx is a two digit hex number.

       -S <str> (Sernum)
              Overwrite the serial number PDR with the  given  string.  String
              must be <= 12 characters, any extra will be truncated.

       -l <adrr> (padloc)
              PDA location in card memory.  Commonly values:
                HFA3841 ==> 0x003f0000
                HFA3842 ==> 0x007f0000

       devname
              Linux device name (e.g. eth0, wlan0)

EXAMPLES

       Review card status:
         prism2dl -s wlan0

       Load a new PDA:
         prism2dl -p pdafile.txt wlan0
        or
         prism2dl -p pdafile.txt -a pda1.txt -a pda2.txt wlan0

         Note  that  the  f/w  images will most likely contain bogus plug info
       after
         rewriting the PDA by itself.  It is generally recommended  to  reload
       the
         primage and secondary images at the same time as modifying the PDA.

       Load a FLASH image _and_ PDA:
         prism2dl  -p  pdafile.txt  -f CIS.hex -f primary.hex -f secondary.hex
       wlan0

       Load a RAM image:
         prism2dl -a pda1.txt -r tertiary.hex

       Note: PDA records are additive starting with the records from the card
          OR the records from the -p specified file.  -a specified file(s)
          overwrite, append, or remove records one at a time.  If multiple
          files are specified using the -a option, the files are processed
          from left to right.  This implies that a record removed from the
          current working PDA may then be added again by a record that
          appears after the "remove" record in the file set.
