NAME

       srec_ppx - Stag Prom Programmer hexadecimal format

DESCRIPTION

       This is the native hexadecimal format of the Stag Prom Programmer.

   Format
       The file must start with an asterisk '*' on a line by itself.

       Each line has a 16‐bit address, followed by 8‐bit bytes.

       The  end  is  indicated  by '$S' folloowed by a 16‐bit checksum of the data bytes as 4 hex
       digits.

   Command Line Option
       This format is specified using the -PPX command line option.

   Size Multiplier
       In general, binary data will expand in sized by approximately  3  times  when  represented
       with this format (worse if you use shorter lines).

EXAMPLE

       Here  is  an  example PPX file.  It contains the data “Hello, World” to be loaded at bytes
       address 0x0000 (but remember, the file contents are always multiples of four bytes).
              *
              0000 48 65 6C 6C 6F 2C 20 57 6F 72 6C 64 21 0A $S0473
