# Compiling and decompiling ACPI Tables

See Troubleshooting if you have dumping/compiling errors

# macOS

So compiling DSDTs and SSDTs are quite easy with macOS, all you need is MaciASL. To compile, just File -> SaveAs -> ACPI Machine Language Binary(.AML), decompiling is just opening the file in MaciASL.

For those who prefer the command line, grab iasl-stable and run the following:

path/to/iasl path/to/DSDT.aml
  • If compiled .aml file is provided, a decompiled .dsl file will be given and vice versa.

# Windows

Compiling and decompiling on windows is fairly simple though, you will need iasl.exe and Command Prompt:

path/to/iasl.exe path/to/DSDT.aml

  • If compiled .aml file is provided, a decompiled .dsl file will be given and vice versa.

# Linux

Compiling and decompiling with Linux is just as simple, you will need a copy of iasl. You can get it here (iasl) or through the iasl package in your package manager. iasl can be used as such:

path/to/iasl path/to/DSDT.aml
  • If compiled .aml file is provided, a decompiled .dsl file will be given and vice versa.
