NAME
       edid-decode - Decode EDID data in human-readable format

SYNOPSIS
       edid-decode [in] [out]

DESCRIPTION
       edid-decode  decodes  EDID  monitor  description  data in human-readable format.  It takes
       zero, one, or two arguments.  If invoked with no arguments it reads  from  standard  input
       and  writes to standard output.	With one argument, the file named by the argument is read
       instead.  With two arguments, normal output is suppressed, and the  binary  EDID  blob  is
       written to the file named by the second argument.

       Input  files  may  be  raw  binaries or ASCII text.  ASCII input is scanned for hex dumps;
       heuristics are included to search for hexdumps in xrandr(1) property  output  and  Xorg(1)
       log  file  formats,  otherwise the data is treated as a raw hexdump.  EDID blocks for con-
       nected monitors can be found in /sys/class/drm/*/edid on modern Linux systems with  kernel
       modesetting support.

NOTES
       Not  all  fields  are decoded, or decoded completely.  Some fields' decoding may appear to
       corrupt the output (for example, detailed string sections have their contents printed lit-
       erally).   edid-decode  does attempt to validate its input against the relevant standards,
       but its opinions have not been double-checked with the relevant standards bodies, so  they
       may  be	wrong.	Do not rely on the output format, as it will likely change in future ver-
       sions of the tool as additional fields and extensions are added.
