NAME

       srec_cosmac - RCA Cosmac Elf file format

DESCRIPTION

       This  file  takes  the  form  of  one  or  more  RCA Cosmac Elf monitor
       commands, also known as the IDIOT/4 monitor.  Only  the  change  memory
       command (!M) is allowed.

       The general form of the !M command takes the form
              !Maaaa dd ... dd
       The  !M  command writes data byte bytes (represented by character pairs
       dd) into successive memory locations, started at address aaaa.   Spaces
       between data bytes are ignored.

       Using  the  comma (,) line continuation character resumes from the next
       address in sequence.
              !Maaaa dd ... dd, dd ... dd

       Using the semicolon (;) line continuation character takes an address on
       the next line
              !Maaaa dd ... dd; aaaa dd ... dd

       It  is  also  possible  to  have  the  semicolon  immediately after the
       command.
              !M; aaaa dd ... dd

       All of these forms may be used in combination.

   Size Multiplier
       In general, binary data will expand in size by approximately 2.0  times
       when represented with this format.

EXAMPLE

       Here  is an example Cosmac file.  It contains the data ‘‘Hello, World’’
       to be loaded at address 0x1000.
              !M1000 48656C6C6F2C20576F726C640A
