ard-parse-boards - Read data from the Arduino boards.txt file USAGE
Dump all the data in the file: $ ard-parse-boards --dump See which boards we know about: $ ard-parse-boards --boards Look for a particular board... $ ard-parse-boards --find uno multiple terms are implicitly ANDed: $ ard-parse-boards --find duemil 328 Dump all the data for a particular board: $ ard-parse-boards atmega328 Extract a particular field: $ ard-parse-boards atmega328 build.f_cpu DESCRIPTION
The Arduino software package ships with a boards.txt file which tells the Arduino IDE details about particular hardware. So when the user says he's got a shiny new Arduino Uno, boards.txt knows that it has a 16MHz ATmega328 on it. It would be nice to access these data from the command line too. In normal operation you simply specify the tag given to the board in the boards.txt file, and optionally a field name. This program then extracts the data to STDOUT. Most boards have names which are quite unwieldy, so we always refer to a board by a tag, not its name. Strictly the tag is the bit before the first dot in the boards.txt key. You can see a list of board tags and names with the "--boards" option. OPTIONS
--boards_txt=[file] Specify the full path to the boards.txt file. The following options all disable the normal 'lookup' operation. --dump Dump the complete database in YAML format. --boards Print a list of the tag and name of every board in the file. --find [query] <query> ... Find matching data. Strictly, return a list of values which match all of the query terms, treating each term as a case-insensitive regexp. For example: --find 328 List data containing 328 (anywhere in the value). --find due List data containing 'due' (e.g. duemilanove). --find 328 due List data containing both 328 and due.
