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 system,
       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
              converted 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
