The writePuck utility is used to store payloads (for example, service code and metadata)
to PUCK memory.
If the -id option is specified only an instrument ID will be written to the puck.
|-b baudHint||Suggested baud rate will be tried first to save time. By default, the utility will try at different baud rates.||300, 2400, 4800, 9600, 19200, 38400, 57600, 115200|
|-t triesPerBaud||Number of retries at each communication rate when trying to establish communication with the PUCK interface||-|
|-id||If the -id option is specified only an instrument ID will be written to the puck. The SIAM application will attempt to look for the service code and metadata locally if they are not located in the puck.||-|
|port||Communications port to use for the PUCK connection.||COM1, /dev/tty.KeySerial1, /dev/ttyS0|
|type||String identifying the PUCK payload being written. Host systems will use this identifier to retrieve the payload. It may contain alpha-numeric characters. If multiple payloads will be stored in the PUCK memory, each type string must be unique.||"MBARI_SIAM", "ESONET.SensorML", "MBARI.FOCE"|
|file||The payload data to store in PUCK memory. It may be in virtually any format, as long as it doesn't exceed the available PUCK memory (which may vary from device to device).||myCTD.xml, myBundle.jar, manyThings.tar.gz, myCals.csv, etc.|
