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.
route_atob -i ASCII_input_file
Read ASCII descriptions of MRT messages from this file. Using a
file name of 'stdin' will read input from standard in.
The following command sequence will inject the routes described in in
the input file into the BGP peering session with enss131.
route_atob -i /tmp/input | sbgp -i stdin enss131 AS690
See the output of route_btoa for the grammer required by route_atob.
