       detok - OpenBIOS detokenizer


       detok [options] forth-file


       detok  is an open-source FCode detokenizer for the OpenBIOS project. It
       performs the reverse function, that is, it converts binary FCode into a
       form that can be read for purposes of verification.


       -h, -? Print a brief help message and then exit.

       -v, --verbose
              Print   additional   messages:  the  hex  value  of  each  token
              processed, as well as a signature block.

       -o     Display the positions of the tokens relative to the start of the
              first  FCode  block  after a PCI header (if one is present), and
              the destination-offset of each branch.
              Note that the combination of the  Verbose  and  Offsets  options
              yields the maximum amount of useful information.

       -n     Display the sequential number of each line of output.
              Note  that the -n and -o options are mutually exclusive; if both
              are specified, -o will be favoured.

       -a     Do not stop when end0  has  been  encountered.  This  option  is
              usually  not needed, but may be useful in cases where a file has
              been  corrupted  or  when  something  very  strange   has   been

       -f FCode-List-File
              Pre-load  additional  FCodes  before processing. These might be,
              for  instance,  a  set  of  vendor-specific  FCodes  that   were
              generated  for  a  specific  vendor’s  products  by  a tokenizer
              customized for that specific vendor.
