NAME

route_atob - converts ASCII descriptions of MRT messages to binary  

DESCRIPTION

Usage: route_atob [-i ascii_data_file] [-(o|w) binary_out_file]

Route_AtoB converts ASCII descriptions of MRT messages to binary. By default, the program writes binary MRT message streams or files to standard out.

Route_AtoB includes a perl version of the program. In general, the compiled version is probably more robust and up-to-date than the perl code.
