SYNOPSISastribank_tool [ options ] [ operation... ] -D device-path astribank_tool [-h]
DESCRIPTIONastribank_tool is a tool to control the USB-level functionality of an Astribank. The tool operates on a single Astribank at a time (given as parameter to the -D command line option).
OPTIONS-D device-path Required. The device to read from/write to. On modern UDEV-based system this is usually /dev/bus/usb/bus_num/device_num, where bus_num and device_num are the first two numbers in the output of lsusb(8). On older systems that use usbfs, it is usually /proc/bus/usb/bus_num/device_num. -p num Set the TwinStar port number. Either 0 or 1. (TODO: explain). -r type Reset the Astribank and renumerate its USB connection to power on product ID. Tyep can be: half or full. (TODO: explain those). -w 0|1 Enable (1) or disable (0) the TwinStar watchdog. When enabled, the Astribank will jump to the second port if this system is "not working" and the system on the second port is available. -Q Query astribank properties via MPP protocol. -n Renumerate the Astribank product number (e.g: from 1161 to 1162). -v Increase verbosity. May be used multiple times. -d mask Set debug mask to mask. Default is 0, 0xFF is "everything". -h Displays usage message.
