       astribank_tool [-h]


       astribank_tool  is  a tool to control the USB-level functionality of an
       Astribank.  The tool operates on a single Astribank at a time (given as
       parameter to the -D command line option).


       -D device-path
              Required. The device to read from/write to. On modern UDEV-based
              system this is  usually  /dev/bus/usb/bus_num/device_num,  where
              bus_num  and  device_num are the first two numbers in the output
              of lsusb(8).  On older systems that use  usbfs,  it  is  usually

       -p num
              Set the TwinStar port number. Either 0 or 1.

              (TODO: explain).

       -r type
              Reset  the  Astribank and renumerate its USB connection to power
              on product ID.

              Tyep can be: half or full.

              (TODO: explain those).

       -w 0|1
              Enable (1) or disable (0) the TwinStar watchdog.  When  enabled,
              the  Astribank  will  jump  to the second port if this system is
              "not working" and the system on the second port is available.

              Query astribank properties via MPP protocol.

              Renumerate the Astribank  product  number  (e.g:  from  1161  to

              Increase verbosity. May be used multiple times.

       -d mask
              Set debug mask to mask. Default is 0, 0xFF is "everything".

              Displays usage message.
