dmidecode

Dmidecode reports information about your system's hardware as described in your system BIOS according to the SMBIOS/DMI standard. This information typically includes system manufacturer, model name, serial number, BIOS version, asset tag, and a lot of other details of varying level of interest and reliability, depending on the manufacturer. This will often include usage status for the CPU sockets, expansion slots and memory module slots, and the list of I/O ports.

Typo in dmidecode-2.0
On line 1338 of dmidecode.c the string "EDD" is found. According to the SMBIOS documentation section 3.3.7.1 this should actually read "ECC" as EDD stands for Enhanced Disk Drive (see section 3.3.1.1). Perhaps line 435 should have EDDs meaning spelt out in full as well?
