       detok - OpenBIOS detokenizer

       detok [options] forth-file

       detok is an open-source FCode detokenizer for the OpenBIOS project. It
       performs the reverse function, that is, it converts binary FCode into a
       form that can be read for purposes of verification.

       -h, -? Print a brief help message and then exit.

       -v, --verbose
              Print additional messages: the hex value of each token
              processed, as well as a signature block.

       -o     Display the positions of the tokens relative to the start of the
              first FCode block after a PCI header (if one is present), and
              the destination-offset of each branch.
              Note that the combination of the Verbose and Offsets options
              yields the maximum amount of useful information.

       -n     Display the sequential number of each line of output.
              Note that the -n and -o options are mutually exclusive; if both
              are specified, -o will be favoured.

       -a     Do not stop when end0 has been encountered. This option is
              usually not needed, but may be useful in cases where a file has
              been corrupted or when something very strange has been

       -f FCode-List-File
              Pre-load additional FCodes before processing. These might be,
              for instance, a set of vendor-specific FCodes that were
              generated for a specific vendor's products by a tokenizer
              customized for that specific vendor.
