SYNOPSIS
       acpidump [-a address] [-b] [-h]

DESCRIPTION
       This  utility will read the ACPI tables, if any, that were presented to
       the kernel from the BIOS at boot  and  display  the  information.   The
       tables will be printed out in hexidecimal format and can be parsed with
       the acpixtract(1) and madt(1) utilities.


OPTIONS
       The following options are supported:

       -h

           Display the help menu containing the options supported by the util-
           ity.


       -l [length]

           Requires a starting address, specified with -a, and will  dump  the
           range  of  physical  address but makes no attempt to understand the
           contents of that memory.


       -o [file]

           Redirect the output provided by the utility to the specified file.


       -s [count]
