NAME

       ldns-read-zone - read a zonefile and print it

SYNOPSIS

       ldns-read-zone ZONEFILE

DESCRIPTION

       ldns-read-zone  reads  a DNS zone file and prints it. The output has 1 resource record per
       line, and no pretty-printing makeup.

OPTIONS

       -0     Print a (null) for the RRSIG inception, expiry and key data.  This  option  can  be
              used when comparing different signing systems that use the same DNSKEYs for signing
              but would have a slightly different timings/jitter.

       -b     Include Bubble Babble encoding of DS's.

       -c     Canonicalize all resource records in the zone before printing

       -d     Only print DNSSEC data from the zone. This option skips every record that is not of
              type NSEC, NSEC3 or RRSIG. DNSKEY and DS records are not printed.

       -e RR type
              Do  not  print  RRs of the given rr type.  This option may be given multiple times.
              -e is not meant to be used together with -E.

       -E RR type
              Print only RRs of the given rr type.  This option may be given multiple times.   -E
              is not meant to be used together with -e.

       -h     Show usage and exit

       -n     Do not print the SOA record

       -p     Pad  the  SOA  serial number with spaces so the number and the spaces together take
              ten characters. This is useful for in file serial number increments.

       -s     Strip DNSSEC data from the zone. This option skips every record  that  is  of  type
              NSEC, NSEC3 or RRSIG. DNSKEY and DS records are still printed.

       -S [[+|0]number | YYYYMMDDxx | unixtime ]
              Set  serial  number  to  the  given  number, or when preceded by a sign, offset the
              exisiting number with it. When giving the literal strings YYYYMMDDxx  or  unixtime,
              the  serial  number  is  tried  to  be  reset  in datecounter or in unixtime format
              respectively. Though is the updated serial number is smaller than the original one,
              the original one is simply increased by one.

              When  updating  a serial number, records of type NSEC, NSEC3, RRSIG and DNSKEY will
              be skipped when printing the zone.

       -u RR type
              Mark RR type for printing in unknown type format.

              -u is not meant to be used together with -U.

       -U RR type
              Mark RR type for not printing in unknown type format.

              The first occurrence of the -U option marks all RR types for  printing  in  unknown
              type  format  except  for  the given RR type.  Subsequent -U options will clear the
              mark for those RR types too, so that only the given RR types will be printed in the
              presentation format specific for those RR types.

              -U is not meant to be used together with -u.

       -v     Show the version and exit

       -z     Sort the zone before printing (this implies -c)
