Examples

Checksum a buffer.

 
RedBoot> cksum -b 0x100000 -l 0x100

Checksum an area of memory after loading a file. Note that the base address and length parameters are provided by the preceding load command.

 
RedBoot> load -r -b %{FREEMEMLO} redboot.bin
Raw file loaded 0x06012800-0x0602f0a8
RedBoot> cksum
Computing cksum for area 0x06012800-0x0602f0a8
POSIX cksum = 2092197813 116904 (0x7cb467b5 0x0001c8a8)
