       pack_cis - compile PCMCIA Card Information Structures

       pack_cis [-o outfile] infile

       Pack_cis  is  used  to  convert	a text description of a PCMCIA Card Information Structure
       (CIS) to its packed binary representation.  It can parse a reasonably useful subset of the
       possible  output  of  the  dump_cis  utility.  The primary use of pack_cis is to construct
       replacement CIS files for cards that have incomplete, inaccurate, or  damaged  CIS  struc-
       tures.	Thus,  the  supported tuple types are mostly limited to things that are important
       for correctly configuring typical IO cards.

       By default, the packed data is written to standard output.

       The best way to get started writing CIS descriptions will be to use  dump_cis  to  extract
       the  CIS data from a card, and to examine the CIS files distributed with the PCMCIA source
       tree in etc/cis/.

       The basic structure of a CIS is a list of tuple descriptions.  Anything following  a  hash
       mark (``#'') is treated as a comment.  A multifunction CIS can be described with the nota-

	      [common tuple list]
	      mfc {
		[tuple list for function 0]
	      }, {
		[tuple list for function 1]

       -o outfile
	      Write the packed tuple data to the specified file.
