MAKEROM(1)                       User Commands                      MAKEROM(1)

NAME
       makerom - Compile files into C source code

SYNOPSIS
       makerom [options] files ... >output.c

       [--files  fileList] [--name struct-name] [--mount mount-point] [--strip
       strip]

DESCRIPTION
       To enable files to be accessed on embedded systems without a file  sys-
       tem,  the makerom command converts arbitrary files into C code that can
       be compiled and linked into a program. This is useful for  applications
       that  must  execute  completely  from ROM and not access a file system.
       This facility can also enhance security by preventing the  modification
       of files.

       The  MPR  portable  runtime provides routines which can then read these
       files much as you would read any file on disk.

OPTIONS
       --files fileList
              Option to provide a list of files that should be converted.

       --p mount
              Specifies a mount point for the rom file system.  This  defaults
              to /rom.

       --name structName
              Specifies  the name of top level C structure that holds the con-
              verted files.

       --p strip
              Specifies a filename prefix to strip from the start of each file
              name.

EXAMPLE
       This  example  will  create  a list of web files and then convert these
       files into C structures in the file romFiles.c.

           find web -type f -print >fileList

           makerom --files filelist >romFiles.c

           cc -o romFiles.o romFiles.c
