NAME

netscript-compile - netscript ipfilter-defs compile back end.  

SYNOPSIS

netcript-compile [ -fhq ] [ -b max-backup-level ]

 

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the netscript-compile command from the netscript router/firewall network configuration package.

This command is the back end to the netscript compile command documented in netscript(8) manpage. See ipfilter-defs(5) for the details on the definitions files in /etc/netscript/ipfilter-defs.

By default it checks to see if the relevant files in the /etc/netscript/ipfilter-defs directory have been updated by comparing their modification times to that of /etc/netscript/ipfilter-defs.conf, and if updating is needed, it recompiles and re-creates the file. Up to max-backup-levels of history are kept of previously compiled /etc/netscript/ipfilter-defs.conf files, with a numeric extention in order of increasing age.

 

OPTIONS

-b max-backup-level
Sets the maximum level of backups kept of previously compiled files. This defaults to 2 (see /etc/netscript/netscript-compile.conf), and it is also used by the netscript(8) compile command.
-f
Force compile even though compile file is up to date with definitions. The testing depends on the modification times of the definition file inodes in the file system.
-h

Show a summary of options.
-q
Quiet compile. This option suppresses informational progress messages.

 

FILES

/etc/netscript/ipfilter-defs.conf,
/etc/netscript/ipfilter-defs-compiled.conf,
/etc/netscript/ipfilter-defs directory.
