detok(1) 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.
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.
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.
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 tokenized...
-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.
