       fpaversion - print FPA version, load microcode

       fpaversion [ -chlqv ] [ -t [ cdhimprstvxCIMS ]]

       Available  only on Sun-3 and Sun-3x systems equipped with either an FPA
       or an FPA+.

       fpaversion performs various tests on the FPA or  FPA+.   Without  argu-
       ments,  it  prints the microcode version number and constants currently
       installed on /dev/fpa.  fpaversion also performs a quick test to ensure
       proper operation and reports whether an FPA or an FPA+ is installed.

       -c     Continue tests after an error.

       -h     Help.  Print command-line summary.

       -l     Loop through tests infinitely.

       -q     Quiet output.  Print out only error messages.

       -v     Verbose output.

       -t     Specify certain tests:

              c      Command register format instructions.

              d      Double precision format instructions.

              h      Help.  Print summary of test specifiers.

              x      Extended format instructions.

              C      Check checksum for microcode, mapping RAM,  and  constant
                     RAM  for  the  FPA.  Check checksum for microcode RAM and
                     constant RAM for the FPA+.

              I      Allows interactive reads and writes to the FPA.

              M      Command register format matrix instructions.
