     flashctl -- a program to manipulate flash devices

     flashctl device command [arg [...]]

     flashctl could be used to invoke low level operations specific to flash devices.  It is used
     by specifying a device to manipulate, the command to perform, and any arguments the command
     may require.

     The following commands may be used on flash devices:

     badblocks		List the bad blocks on the device.

     erase offset size	Erase size amount of flash memory from offset.	Size could be all, which
			means the rest of the flash after offset will be erased.

     identify		Identify the specified device, displaying the device's vendor, product
			strings, and the device's capabilities.

     markbad offset	Mark the block given by its offset as bad.


     The flashctl command first appeared in NetBSD 6.0.

     The flashctl command was written by Adam Hoka.
