     sc_warts2text — simple dump of information contained in a warts file.


     sc_warts2text [-d ip2descr-file] [file ...]


     The sc_warts2text utility provides a simple dump of information contained in a sequence of
     warts files.  The output is the same as that which would have been provided by scamper if
     the text output option had been chosen instead of the warts output option when the data was
     collected.  The options are as follows:

     -d ip2descr-file
             specifies the name of a file with IP-address, description mappings, one mapping per
             line.  See the examples section for further information.

     While the output of sc_warts2text is structured and suitable for initial analyses of
     results, the format of the output is not suitable for automated parsing and analysis as the
     output of sc_warts2text will change overtime with no regard to backwards compatibility.
     Analyses of the contents of a warts file should be made using specialised programs which
     link against the scamper file API.


     The command:

        sc_warts2text file1.warts file2.warts

     will decode and print the contents of file1.warts, followed by the contents of file2.warts.

     The command:

        gzcat file1.warts.gz | sc_warts2text

     will print the contents of the uncompressed file supplied on stdin.

     Given a set of IP-address, description pairs in a file name mappings.txt: "foo" "bar"

     then the command gzcat file1.warts.gz | sc_warts2text -d mappings.txt will print the
     description associated with a given destination address before each result is presented.
