srec_logisim.5(5)	      File Formats Manual	     srec_logisim.5(5)

       srec_logisim - format Logisim EPROM load	files

       The file	format used for	image files is intentionally simple; this per-
       mits you	to write a program, such as an assembler, that generates  mem-
       ory  images  that can then be loaded into memory. As an example of this
       file format, if we had a	256-byte memory	whose first five bytes were 2,
       3,  0,  20,  and	 -1,  and all subsequent values	were 0,	then the image
       would be	the following text file.
	      v2.0 raw

	      02 03 00 14 ff
       The first line identifies the file format  used	(currently,  there  is
       only  one file format recognized). Subsequent values list the values in
       hexadecimal, starting from address 0; you can place several such	values
       on  the	same line. Logisim will	assume that any	values unlisted	in the
       file are	zero.

       The image file can use run-length encoding; for	example,  rather  than
       list  the  value	 00 sixteen times in a row, the	file can include 16*00
       rather than repeat 00 sixteen times. Notice than	the number of  repeti-
       tions  is  written  in base 10. Files produced by Logisim will use run-
       length encoding for runs	of at least four values

   Size	Multiplier
       In general, binary data will expand  in	sized  by  approximately  2.95
       times when represented with this	format.

       This format is particularly deficient.

       o The is	no way for changing address in-flight.	And therefore the for-
	 mat can't have	holes in the data.

       o There are no checksums, or any	other error checking.

       o There is no provision for a comment header, as	distinct to the	 "v2.0
	 raw" magic number.

       o There is no provision for an execution	start adddress.
