     iasl - Intel ASL compiler and disassembler (iASL)

     iasl [options] <input file>

     The iasl is a fully-featured compiler for the ACPI Source Language (ASL).
     It translates ASL to ACPI Machine Language (AML), but iasl can also act
     as a disassembler, translating AML to ASL.

         -@ file       Specify command file.
         -I dir        Specify additional include directory.

   General Output
         -p prefix     Specify a path or filename prefix for all output files.
         -va           Disable all errors and warnings in the summary.
         -vi           Use less verbose errors and warnings.
         -vo           Enable optimization comments.
         -vr           Disable remarks.
         -vs           Disable signon.
         -w 1 | 2 | 3  Set warning reporting level.

   AML Output Files
         -s a | c      Create AML in assembler (*.asm) or C (*.c) source file.
         -i a | c      Create assembler (*.inc) or C (*.h) include file.
         -t a | c      Create AML in assembler or C hex table (*.hex).

   AML Code Generation
         -oa           Disable all optimizations (compatibility mode).
         -of           Disable constant folding.
         -oi           Disable integer optimization to operation codes.
         -on           Disable named reference string optimization.
         -r revision   Override table header revision (1-255).

         -l            Create mixed, ASL and AML, listing file (*.lst).
         -ln           Create namespace file (*.nsp).
         -ls           Create combined source file (*.src).

   AML Disassembler
         -d file       Disassemble binary ACPI table to a file (*.dsl).
         -dc file      Disassemble AML and immediately compile it.
         -e f1, f2     Include ACPI table(s) for external symbol resolution.
         -2            Emit ACPI 2.0 compatible ASL code.
         -g            Get ACPI tables and write to files (*.dat).

         -h            Display additional help and compiler debug options.
         -hc           Display operators allowed in constant expressions.
         -hr           Display ACPI reserved method names.

     The iasl compiler/disassembler is part of the Intel ACPI Component
     Architecture (ACPICA).  It first appeared in NetBSD 6.0.

     Among Intel engineers, Robert Moore <robert.moore@intel.com> was the
     chief architect behind iasl.  This manual page was written for NetBSD by
     Jukka Ruohonen <jruohonen@iki.fi>.
