       srec_fastload - LSI Logic Fast Load file	format

       The  FastLoad  Format uses a compressed ASCII format that permits files
       to be downloaded	in less	than half  the	time  taken  for  Motorola  S-

       The  base-64  encoding  used  is	"A-Za-z0-9,.".	The data is encoded in
       groups of 4 characters (3 bytes,	24 bits).

       The character '/' is used to introduce  a  special  function.   Special
       functions are:

       Annnnnn Defines an address.

       Bnn     Define a	single byte.

       Cnnnn   Compare	the  checksums.	  The  checksum	 is  a simple positive
	       16-bit sum, of the data bytes only.

       EAA     Define the program's entry point.  The address will be the cur-
	       rent  address  as  defined by the A command.  (The AA number in
	       this command is ignored.)  This must be the last	entry  in  the

       KAA     Clear  the  checksum.   (The  AA	 number	in this	command	is ig-

       Sname,X Define a	symbol.	 The address of	the symbol will	be the current
	       address as defined by the A command.

       Znn     Clear a number of bytes.

   Size	Multiplier
       In general, binary data will expand in sized by approximately 1.4 times
       when represented	with this format.

       Here is an example LSI Logic Fast Load format file.   It	 contains  the
       data "Hello, World[rq] to be loaded at address 0.
