OpenBoot 3.x Command Reference Manual

Binary Executables

dload requires binary programs to be in Client program header. Executable binary programs loaded must be either linked to dload's input address (e.g., 4000) or be position independent. To execute the binary program, type:

ok go

To run the program again, type:

ok init-program go

dload does not use intermediate booters (unlike the boot command). Thus, any symbol information included in the Client program header file is available to the User Interface's symbolic debugging capability. (See Chapter 6, Debugging for more information on symbolic debugging.)
