       [-M filename,...]  [-N N]  [-P str]   [-Q]   [-S filename]   [-T filename]   [-U N]   [-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]

DESCRIPTION

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

OPTIONS

       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:
              0      No debugging (default)
              1      Shallow debugging
              2      Deep debugging
              3-9    Same as 2

       -F N   Fix non-printing characters:
              0      Replace with #, post ERROR (default)
              1      Replace with # silently
              2      Pass through silently
              3      Replace with #, post FATAL

       -G     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

       -N N   UTF8 input conversion:
              0      Convert silently (default)
              1      Convert, post WARNING first time
              2      Convert, post WARNING each time
              3      Do not convert

       -P str XML module prefix for DOCTYPE

       -Q     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

       -U N   UTF8 output conversion:
              0      Convert silently (default)
              1      Convert, post WARNING first time
              2      Convert, post WARNING each time
              3      Do not convert

       -V     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.

       -Z     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
