       astribank_tool - Xorcom Astribank (xpp) firmware loader


       astribank_tool -D device-path <-F|-p> [options] hexfile

       astribank_tool [-h]


       astribank_hexload   is   a  second-stage  firmware  loader  for  Xorcom
       Astribanks. Note that some older models use fpga_load(8) instead.

       It is used to load a file  in  the  Intel  HEX  format  into  a  Xorcom
       Astribank.  It  can  be  used  to load either an FPGA firmware or a PIC
       firmware. It is normally run by the script xpp_fxloader.


       -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

              The firmware to load is a FPGA firmware.

              The firmware to load is a PIC firmware.

              Increase verbosity. May be used multiple times.

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

              Displays usage message.
