NAME

       srec_logisim - format Logisim EPROM load files

DESCRIPTION

       The  file format used for image files is intentionally simple; this permits you to write a
       program, such as an assembler, that generates memory images that can then be  loaded  into
       memory.  As  an  example of this file format, if we had a 256‐byte memory whose first five
       bytes were 2, 3, 0, 20, and -1, and all subsequent values were 0, then the image would  be
       the following text file.
              v2.0 raw

              02 03 00 14 ff
       The  first  line identifies the file format used (currently, there is only one file format
       recognized). Subsequent values list the values in hexadecimal, starting  from  address  0;
       you  can  place  several such values on the same line. Logisim will assume that any values
       unlisted in the file are zero.

       The image file can use run‐length encoding; for example, rather than  list  the  value  00
       sixteen  times  in  a row, the file can include 16*00 rather than repeat 00 sixteen times.
       Notice than the number of repetitions is written in base 10.  Files  produced  by  Logisim
       will use run‐length encoding for runs of at least four values

   Size Multiplier
       In  general, binary data will expand in sized by approximately 2.95 times when represented
       with this format.

   Commentary
       This format is particularly deficient.

       · The is no way for changing address in‐flight.  And therefore the format can't have holes
         in the data.

       · There are no checksums, or any other error checking.

       · There is no provision for a comment header, as distinct to the “v2.0 raw” magic number.

       · There is no provision for an execution start adddress.
