ACPIXTRACT(1M) Maintenance Commands ACPIXTRACT(1M)

NAME


acpixtract - extract binary ACPI tables from a dump file

SYNOPSIS


acpixtract [-ahlmv] [-s signature] file

DESCRIPTION


The acpixtract utility extracts the binary data from a dump of the system's
Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) tables. The dump is
usually obtained via the acpidump(1M) command. The resulting binary
file(s) are represented in the ACPI ASL assembly language. For each table
extracted, a corresponding table.dat file will be created.

OPTIONS


The following options are supported:

-a Extract all of the tables found. By default only the DSDT and SSDT
tables will be extracted.

-h Display the usage message and exit.

-l List tables only, do not extract.

-m Make a single file for all of the DSDT and SSDT tables.

-s signature
Get the table with the specified signature.

-v Print the version.

EXAMPLES


Example 1 Extract all ACPI tables

The following example extracts all of the individual ACPI tables from a
previously created dump of the ACPI tables from a running system. Such a
dump can be created with the acpidump(1M) utility. Extracted tables can
then be inspected or disassembled by the iasl utility on any platform.
