.SH NAME
flexloader \- GPL utility to configure SRAM based ALTERA devices via the ALTERA ByteBlaster

.SH SYNOPSIS
.B flexloader 
.I [options] [parport_dev] [rbf_filename]
.SH DESCRIPTION
.B flexloader
is a small utility to configure SRAM based ALTERA devices.
It downloads a code to the device SRAM using the ALTERA ByteBlaster
or compatible JTAG programmer. It dialogs with it through the parallel 
interface, using parport. Note that you should have access rights to the 
parallel port.

It should support APEX20K, FLEX10K, FLEX6000 and ACEX1K families,
though I only tested it on a FLEX10K10 device.

It currently only support files in raw binary format (.rbf), but others
format such as HEX or TTF may be implemented later.
