Convert a MAC Address to Motorola S-Records

 in

If you do embedded programming you're probably familiar with Motorola S-Records. This following script takes a MAC Address and outputs S-Record data.

Given a MAC Address the script outputs S-Record data:

  # sh macid.sh 00:11:22:33:44:55
  S00D0000333737382D322E746D703B
  S1090000001122334455F7
  S9030000FC
Optionally, you can specify an address for re-basing the S-Record data and an output file name to write the S-Records to:
  # sh macid.sh --address 0xffff0000 --output ma 00:11:22:33:44:55
  # cat ma
  S00D0000333733302D322E746D7047
  S30BFFFF0000001122334455F7
  S705FFFF0000FC

The script follows:
#!/bin/bash

mac_addr_pattern='^[0-9a-fA-F]{2}[-:]'
mac_addr_pattern+='[0-9a-fA-F]{2}[-:]'
mac_addr_pattern+='[0-9a-fA-F]{2}[-:]'
mac_addr_pattern+='[0-9a-fA-F]{2}[-:]'
mac_addr_pattern+='[0-9a-fA-F]{2}[-:]'
mac_addr_pattern+='[0-9a-fA-F]{2}'

address_pattern='^(0x)?[0-9a-fA-F]{8}$'
