DUMP_CIS(8)                                           DUMP_CIS(8)

NAME
       dump_cis - Utility to parse PCMCIA Card Information Struc-
       tures

SYNOPSIS
       dump_cis [-f] [-v] [-i infile]

DESCRIPTION
       Dump_cis retrieves and parses the Card Information  Struc-
       tures  for  inserted PCMCIA devices, or optionally, parses
       CIS information from a file.

       The pack_cis utility can parse a subset of the non-verbose
       output  of  dump_cis, so it is fairly easy to use dump_cis
       output as templates for pack_cis.  If  a  replacement  CIS
       has  been  loaded  for  a  card, dump_cis will display the
       replacement rather than the actual data on the card.

OPTIONS
       -f     Force: attempt to decode any available CIS informa-
              tion  even  if the overall CIS organization appears
              to be invalid.

       -v     Verbose output:  display  raw  hex  data  for  each
              tuple,  and  provide  a  more complete dump of some
              tuple types.

       -i infile
              Read packed CIS data from a  file  (as  created  by
              pack_cis) instead of reading from active cards.
