       srec_cosmac - RCA Cosmac	Elf file format

       This  file  takes  the  form of one or more RCA Cosmac Elf monitor com-
       mands, also known as the	IDIOT/4	monitor.  Only the change memory  com-
       mand (!M) is allowed.

       The general form	of the !M command takes	the form
	      !Maaaa dd	... dd
       The  !M	command	writes data byte bytes (represented by character pairs
       dd) into	successive memory locations, started at	address	aaaa.	Spaces
       between data bytes are ignored.

       Using  the  comma (,) line continuation character resumes from the next
       address in sequence.
	      !Maaaa dd	... dd,	dd ... dd

       Using the semicolon (;) line continuation character takes an address on
       the next	line
	      !Maaaa dd	... dd;	aaaa dd	... dd

       It  is  also  possible to have the semicolon immediately	after the com-
	      !M; aaaa dd ... dd

       All of these forms may be used in combination.

   Size	Multiplier
       In general, binary data will expand in size by approximately 2.0	 times
       when represented	with this format.

       Here is an example Cosmac file.	It contains the	data "Hello, World[rq]
       to be loaded at address 0x1000.
