acpi parse utility


Hi, I am looking to see if there is any utility available to parse back some of the acpi tables (dsdt) back to asl code.
Previously i used rwevertyhing utility in windows to do that purpose but somehow it is crushing on my system. Thanks.,

There's a program called iasl that does this. You can use it both to decompile and compile. See https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/DSDT.

thanks i looked up, and downloaded iasl package. it appears it has several utilities inside but all of them appears to require an input file which is the acpi dump itself. there is acpidump executable which supposedly dumps everything but when i redirect to file it appears to save it in text file. Is tehre any utlity that extracts all or some of the tables from live system?

RW everything not only does but also translates back to ASL source so something equivalent for linux would be great. Thanks.,
