Bus interaction syntax
A simple syntax is used to interact with chips. Syntax characters have the same general function in each bus mode, such as 'R' to read a byte of data.
This example syntax sends a bus start , the value 0x31, and then reads 5 bytes, followed by bus stop. Up to 4000 characters of syntax may be entered into the Bus Pirate terminal at once, press enter to execute the syntax.
1.7bit address search
Macros perform complex actions, like scanning for I2C addresses, interrogating a smart card, or probing a JTAG chain. Macros are numbers entered inside (). Macro (0) always displays a list of macros available in the current bus mode.
