       acpidump - ACPI table dump utility

       acpidump [<option>...]

       This  manual  page  briefly documents the acpidump command.  The option list is taken from
       the interactive help.

       a form usable for later processing by the acpixtract command.

       mixed instances of the -a , -f , and -n parameters can be used.

       -b     Dump tables in binary format (versus the default human-readable form)
