Question:

Is a mask file different from an ordinary hexadecimal data file?

Answer:

A mask file is of a file format that registers information specifically for masking Renesas microcomputers.
It is similar to a Motorola S format file, but it cannot be downloaded and used on a debugger. Also, do not edit it with an editor.
Editing will alter the mask file content and will prevent the microcomputer from being masked correctly.
