ptbl(1) print a type table


ptbl [-a] <tbl-file>


ptbl prints the give type table to stdout. It will print it in one of two formats: internal style and ASN.1 stlye. The internal style shows the contents of the type table data structure in ASN.1 value notation. You will need to look at the tbl.asn1 file to understand the internal form. The ASN.1 form attempts to re-create the ASN.1 that generated the given type table.


Print the table in ASN.1 style (recommended)


Source code for the ptbl program snacc/asn1specs/tbl.asn1 ASN.1 definition for the type table data structure


ptbl does not attempt to print the IMPORTs information even though it is possible with a bit of work.
