# This script is used to migrate ASCII packet traces to the protobuf
# format currently used in gem5. It assumes that protoc has been
# executed and already generated the Python package for the packet
# messages. This can be done manually using:
# protoc --python_out=. --proto_path=src/proto src/proto/packet.proto
#
# The ASCII trace format uses one line per request on the format cmd,
# addr, size, tick. For example:
# r,128,64,4000
# w,232123,64,500000
# This trace reads 64 bytes from decimal address 128 at tick 4000,
# then writes 64 bytes to address 232123 at tick 500000.
#
# This script can of course also be used as a template to convert
# other trace formats into the gem5 protobuf format
