NAME

       ifindex - Create nodelist index

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

       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.

OPTIONS

       -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.

RETURN CODES

       0    Successfull
       64   command line usage error
       65   error reading config file

DEBUG VERBOSITY

       d   lock files
       f   aka matching
       g   outbound directories
       h   call

       k   file transfer
       l   filelist
       m   nodelist flags
       r   modem
