-n, --pin_no <n>: set pin number<n>[0,31] for subsequent read/write operations0
-r, --read: read port number/pin number value and direction specified by last -n argument, or all port/pin0
-w, --write <v>: write value specified by last -n argument with value<v>[0,1]0
[-s serial_number_64bits]: Open board with specified 64bits serial number.0


<command> -p 0 -n 12 -r # reads from port 0 pin number 120
<command> -r # reads all pins on all ports0
<command> -p 0 -n 10 -w 1 # writes port 0 pin number 10 with 1 decimal0
