This program should run without installation as root.

To compile:

$ make


A simple example is included that copies the switches to the LEDs on the Xilinx Spartan3 Starter Kit.

$ ./xc3sprog echo_out.bit


The Platform Flash PROM of the Xilinx Spartan3 Starter Kit can be programmed by specifying it's location in the JTAG chain. Example command line below.

$ ./xc3sprog echo_out.bit 1


There is also a utility program included that parses and prints the header of a Xilinx .bit file.

$ ./bitparse echo_out.bit
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
