    Wei,
    
    There is not currently any way to do what you wish to. The program 
    vmadcheck is from the vmadump code used inside of BLCR to generate a 
    portion of the context file. It knows how to print only that portion of 
    what is contained in the BLCR context file, and I believe we may have 
    made changes to that portion of the file format that are not reflected 
    in vmadcheck.c.
    We once maintained a "cr_info" tool that would do what you want, but is 
    has become out-of-date with respect the the context file format (and is 
    therefore no longer build by default). Unfortunately, there is also no 
    documentation for the format other than the code that writes and reads 
    the context files.
