       flexloader - GPL utility to configure SRAM based ALTERA devices via the ALTERA ByteBlaster


       flexloader [options] [parport_dev] [rbf_filename]


       flexloader is a small utility to configure SRAM based ALTERA devices.  It downloads a code
       to the device SRAM using the ALTERA ByteBlaster or compatible JTAG programmer. It  dialogs
       with  it  through  the parallel interface, using parport. Note that you should have access
       rights to the parallel port.

       It should support APEX20K, FLEX10K, FLEX6000 and ACEX1K families, though I only tested  it
       on a FLEX10K10 device.

       It currently only support files in raw binary format (.rbf), but others format such as HEX
       or TTF may be implemented later.
