+*This project used to be hosted the old way on dedicated a webpage. It is probably not useful anymore, but just in case, this is an important of the tarballs as git tags and the webpage as README.md.*
+## What is flexloader?
+flexloader is a small utility to configure SRAM based ALTERA devices. It downloads a code to the device SRAM using an ALTERA ByteBlaster or a compatible programmer (see schematic below). It dialogs with it through the parallel interface, using parport.
+It should support APEX20K, FLEX10K, FLEX6000 and ACEX1K families, though I only tested it on a FLEX10K10 device.
+It currently only supports files in raw binary format (.rbf), but others format such as HEX or TTF may be implemented later.
