       ifindex - Create nodelist index


       ifindex [-h] [-x verbosity] [-I file]


       Ifindex  creates  a  nodelist  index which is used by ifcico for faster
       nodelist lookups.

       Depending on the OPTIONS set when  compiling  the  program,  one  of  3
       different nodelist indices will be generated: a db- a (g)dbm- or a dbz-
       version. The dbz- type  nodelist-index  has  some  advantages  (smaller
       indices  and  faster  index  generation)  over the other 2 types but is
       currently only in PRE-ALPHA state - you should  also  read  the  README
       before using this type of nodelist-index.


       -h     Display a short help message.

       -x Verbosity
              Set the debug verbosity.  Verbosity may be a number from 0 to 32
              to set ’on’ bits from 1 to number, or a string of letters  where
              ’a’ = bit 1, ’b’ = bit 2, etc. up to bit 26.

       -I File
              Use the alternate configuration file File.
