The latest version is usually available either from the ABLE support page or the specific board support page on the Simtec Electronics website.
The batty tool is executed from the ABLE command line and commences execution immediately.
Example 2.1. Starting batty from the command line

Example 2.1, “Starting batty from the command line” shows a typical execution of batty on an EB2410ITX. On this particular platform a fairly small number of tests are performed, specifically a series of memory tests and a verification that the ABLE stored in flash is viable. The DONE line shows the number of tests attempted and the number passed along with any warnings.
