These programs are used to read and write eeproms.

Use eeprom for small eeproms with one-byte addresses:
	24C01, 24C01A, 24C02, 24C04, 24C08, and 24C16
	It works only on true i2c bus adapters.
	See README.eeprom for details.

Use eepromer for large eeproms with two-byte addresses:
	24C32, 24C64, 24C128, 24C256, and 24C512
	It works only on true i2c bus adapters.
	See README.eepromer for details.

Use eeprog for either small or large eeproms.
	Use the -16 switch for large eeproms.
	It works on both i2c and smbus bus adapters.
	See README.eeprog for details.
