srec_info - information about EPROM load files
srec_info [ option... ] filename...
The srec_info program is used to obtain input about EPROM load files.
It reads the files specified, and then presents statistics about them.
These statistics include: the file header if any, the execution start
address if any, and the address ranges covered by the data if any.
INPUT FILE SPECIFICATIONS
Input may be qualified in two ways: you may specify a data file or a
data generator. format and you may specify filters to apply to them.
An input file specification looks like this:
data-file [ filter ... ]
data-generator [ filter ... ]
Input from data files is specified by file name and format name. An
input file specification looks like this:
filename [ format ][ -ignore-checksums ]
The default format is Motorola S-Record format, but many others are
It is also possible to generate data, rather than read it from a file.
You may use a generator anywhere you could use a file. An input
generator specification looks like this:
-GENerate address-range -data-source
Generators include random data and various forms of constant data.
Common Manual Page
See srec_input(1) for complete details of input specifiers. This
description in a separate manual page because it is common to more than
one SRecord command.
The following options are understood:
The named text file is read for additional command line
arguments. Arguments are separated by white space (space, tab,
newline, etc). There is no wildcard mechanism. There is no
quoting mechanism. Comments, which start with '#' and extend
to the end of the line, are ignored. Blank lines are ignored.
Provide some help with using the srec_info program.
The -ignore-checksums option may be used to disable checksum
validation of input files, for those formats which have
checksums at all. Note that the checksum values are still read
in and parsed (so it is still an error if they are missing) but
their values are not checked. Used after an input file name,
the option affects that file alone; used anywhere else on the
command line, it applies to all following files.
This option may be used to enable warnings about input files
where the data records are not in strictly ascending address
order. Only one warning is issued per input. This is the
default. Note: the output of srec_cat(1) is always in this
This option may be used to disable warnings about input files
where the data records are not in stricyly ascending address
Use this option to permit a file to contain multiple
(contradictory) values for some memory locations. A warning
will be printed. The last value in the file will be used. The
default is for this condition to be a fatal error.
Print the version of the srec_info program being executed.
All other options will produce a diagnostic error.
All options may be abbreviated; the abbreviation is documented as the
upper case letters, all lower case letters and underscores (_) are
optional. You must use consecutive sequences of optional letters.
All options are case insensitive, you may type them in upper case or
lower case or a combination of both, case is not important.
For example: the arguments "-help", "-HEL" and "-h" are all interpreted
to mean the -Help option. The argument "-hlp" will not be understood,
because consecutive optional characters were not supplied.
Options and other command line arguments may be mixed arbitrarily on
the command line.
The GNU long option names are understood. Since all option names for
srec_info are long, this means ignoring the extra leading "-". The
"--option=value" convention is also understood.
The srec_info command will exit with a status of 1 on any error. The
srec_info command will only exit with a status of 0 if there are no
