asntool [-] [-B filename] [-D N] [-G] [-I str] [-J type] [-K str] [-L str] [-M filename,...] [-P str] [-Q] [-S filename] [-T filename] [-V] [-X filename] [-Z] [-b N] [-d filename] [-e filename] [-f filename] [-l filename] -m filename [-o filename] [-p filename] [-t str] [-v filename] [-w N] [-x filename]


asntool reads, validates, and displays ASN.1 module specifications.


A summary of options is included below.
Print usage message
-B filename
Generate objects and code in files named filename.*
-D N
Debugging level for code generation:
No debugging (default)
Shallow debugging
Deep debugging
Same as 2
Generate object loader .c and .h files
-I str
Put "#include str" in generated .c file
-J type
Register type type with object manager
-K str
In generated .c, force name of #included asn header to str
-L str
Label registered type as str
-M filename,...
Search the ASN.1 modules in filename,... for external references
-P str
XML module prefix for DOCTYPE
Use quoted syntax form for generated include files
-S filename
Send debugging output to filename rather than stderr
-T filename
Dump ASN.1 tree to filename
Force CHOICE objects to use custom structures rather than ValNodePtrs, for compatibility with some old hand-coded object loaders.
-X filename
Write XML DTD to filename. If filename is "m", print each module to a separate file.
Bit twiddle for optional zero value base slots
-b N
Use N-byte buffers (default = 1024; anything between 512 and 10000 is legal)
-d filename
Read binary values from filename (requires -t)
-e filename
Write binary values to filename
-f filename
Write ASN.1 module to filename
-l filename
Write ASN.1 loader to filename
-m filename
Read ASN.1 module from filename
-o filename
Write header to filename
-p filename
Write print values to filename
-t str
Expect binary values to have type str
-v filename
Read print values from filename
-w N
Limit values in #defines to N bits (default = 31; anything between 31 and 128 is legal)
-x filename
Write XML data to filename
