NAME

       rollrec-editor - DNSSEC-Tools Rollrec GUI Editor

SYNOPSIS

         rollrec-editor [options] <rollrec-file>

DESCRIPTION

       rollrec-editor provides the capability for easy GUI-based management of rollrec files.  A
       rollrec file contains one or more rollrec records.  These records are used by the DNSSEC-
       Tools rollover utilities (rollerd, etc.) to describe zones' rollover state.  Each zone's
       rollrec record contains such information as the zone file, the rollover phase, and logging
       level.  rollrec files are text files and may be edited by any text editor.  rollrec-editor
       allows editing of only those records a user should change and performs error checking on
       the data.

       When rollrec-editor starts, a window is created that has "buttons" for each rollrec record
       in the given rollrec file.  (In this documentation, this window is called the Button
       Window.)  Clicking on the buttons selects (or deselects) that zone.  After one or more
       zones are selected, one of several commands may be executed.  Commands allow modification
       and deletion of existing rollrec records, creation of new rollrec records, merging of
       rollrec files, and verification of file validity.

       rollrec-editor's commands are available through the menus and most have a keyboard
       accelerator.  The commands are described below in the COMMANDS section.

       When a rollrec record is selected for modification, a new window is created to hold the
       editable fields of the record.  The fields may be modified in place.  When editing is
       complete, the record is "saved".  This does not save the modified rollrec into its on-disk
       file; the file must be saved explicitly from the Button Window.

       As stated above, verification checks are performed when saving an edited rollrec record.
       One set of checks ensures that files and directories associated with a zone actually
       exist.  This check may be turned off at command start-up with the -ignore-warns command
       line option.  It may be modified during execution with the "Ignore Edit Warnings" menu
       command.

   Button Window Layout
       The Button Window contains a button for each rollrec record in the selected file.  The
       buttons are arranged in a table that with at least three columns.  The number of columns
       may be set at command start-up with the -columns command line option.  It may be modified
       during execution with the "Columns in Button Window" menu command.

       When setting the number of columns, rollrec-editor minimizes the space required to display
       the selected file's rollrec buttons.  This will sometimes cause the number of columns to
       differ from that requested.

       For example, assume a rollrec file has 12 rollrec records.  The following table shows how
       many rows and columns are given for each of the given column selections.

               column count    rows    columns
                     1          12        1
                     2          6         2
                     3          4         3
                     4          3         4
                     5          3         4
                     6          2         6
                     7          2         6
                     8          2         6
                     9          2         6
                     10         2         6
                     11         2         6
                     12         1         12

       The actual rows and columns for a requested column count will vary in order to allow a
       "best-fit".

   UNDOING MODIFICATIONS
       The "undo" capability is not currently implemented.

       rollrec-editor has the ability to reverse modifications it has made to a rollrec file.
       This historical restoration will only work for modifications made during a particular
       execution of rollrec-editor; modifications made during a previous execution may not be
       undone.

       After a "Save" operation, the data required for reversing modifications are deleted.  This
       is not the case for the "Save As" operation.

OPTIONS

       rollrec-editor supports the following options.

       -columns columns
           This option allows the user to specify the number of columns to be used in the Button
           Window.

       -ignore-warns
           This option causes rollrec-editor to ignore edit warnings when performing validation
           checks on the contents of rollrec records.

       -no-filter
           This option turns off name filtering when rollrec-editor presents a file-selection
           dialog for choosing a new rollrec file.  If this option is not given, then the file-
           selection dialog will only list regular files with a suffix of .rrf.

       -Version
           Displays the version information for rollrec-editor and the DNSSEC-Tools package.

COMMANDS

       rollrec-editor provides the following commands, organized by menus: File, Edit, Commands,
       Rollrecs, and Options.

   File Menu
       The File Menu contains commands for manipulating rollrec files and stopping execution.

       Open
           Open a new rollrec file.  If the specified file does not exist, the user will be
           prompted for the action to take.  If the user chooses the "Continue" action, then
           rollrec-editor will continue editing the current rollrec file.  If the "Quit" action
           is selected, then rollrec-editor will exit.

       Save
           Save the current rollrec file.  The data for the "Undo Changes" command are purged, so
           this file will appear to be unmodified.

           Nothing will happen if no changes have been made.

       Save As
           Save the current rollrec file to a name selected by the user.

       Quit
           Exit rollrec-editor.

   Edit Menu
       The Edit Menu contains commands for general editing operations.

       Undo Changes
           Reverse modifications made to the rollrec records.  This is only for the in-memory
           version of the rollrec file.

           Not currently implemented.

   Commands Menu
       The Commands Menu contains commands for modifying rollrec records.

       New Rollrec
           Create a new rollrec record.   The user is given a new window in which to edit the
           user-modifiable rollrec fields.  A button for the new rollrec record will be inserted
           into the Button Window.

           After editing is completed, the "Save" button will add the new rollrec record to the
           in-memory rollrec file.  The file must be saved in order to have the new rollrec added
           to the file.

           Potentially erroneous conditions will be reported to the user at save time.  If the
           ignore-warnings flag has been turned on, then these warnings will not be reported.
           Errors (e.g., invalid log conditions) will always be reported.

       Delete Selected Rollrecs
           Delete the selected rollrec records.  The buttons for each selected record will be
           removed from the Button Window.

       Edit Selected Rollrecs
           Modify the selected rollrec records.   For every record selected for modification, the
           user is given a new window in which to edit the user-modifiable rollrec fields.  When
           the edit window goes away (after a "Save" or "Cancel"), the rollrec record's button is
           deselected.

           After editing is completed, the "Save" button will add the new rollrec record to the
           in-memory rollrec file.  The file must be saved in order to have the new rollrec added
           to the file.

           Potentially erroneous conditions will be reported to the user at save time.  If the
           ignore-warnings flag has been turned on, then these warnings will not be reported.
           Errors (e.g., invalid log conditions) will always be reported.

       Rename Selected Rollrec
           Rename the selected rollrec record.   The name in the rollrec's "roll" or "skip" line
           will be changed to the new name.  Only one rollrec may be renamed at a time, and it
           may not be edited while the rename is taking place.

           If the rollrec has been modified, the new contents must be written to disk prior to
           the rename happening.  The user will be prompted to ensure that this the user wishes
           to continue.

       Merge Rollrec Files
           Merge a rollrec file with the currently open rollrec file.  After a successful merge,
           the rollrec records in the second file will be added to the end of the currently open
           rollrec file.

           If there are any rollrec name collisions in the files, then the user will be asked
           whether to continue with the merge or cancel it.  If the merge continues, then the
           conflicting rollrec records from the "new" file will be discarded in favor of the
           currently open rollrec file.

       Verify Rollrec File
           Verify the validity of the rollrec file.  The user-editable fields in the open rollrec
           file are checked for validity.  An edit window is opened for each rollrec record that
           registers an error or warning.

           If the ignore-warnings flag has been turned on, then potentially erroneous conditions
           will not be reported.  Errors (e.g., invalid log conditions) will always be reported.

       Summarize Problems
           Summarize the warning and error counts of the rollrec file.  Each rollrec record in
           the open rollrec file is checked for validity.  If any warnings or errors are found, a
           window is displayed that lists the name of each rollrec record and its warning and
           error counts.

           If the ignore-warnings flag has been turned on, then potentially erroneous conditions
           will not be reported.  Errors (e.g., invalid log conditions) will always be reported.

   View Menu
       The View Menu contains miscellaneous commands for viewing edit windows.

       Select All Rollrecs/Unselect All Rollrecs
           Select or unselect all rollrec buttons.  All the buttons in the Button Window will be
           selected or unselected.  If any of the buttons are not selected, this command will
           cause all the buttons to become selected.  If all of the buttons are selected, this
           command will cause all the buttons to be deselected.

           This command is a toggle that switches between Select All Rollrecs and Unselect All
           Rollrecs.

       Reveal Rollrec Edit Windows
           Raise all rollrec edit windows.  This command brings all rollrec edit windows to the
           front so that any that are hidden behind other windows will become visible.

       Close Rollrec Edit Windows
           Close all rollrec edit windows.  This command closes and deselects all rollrec edit
           windows.

   Options Menu
       The Options Menu allows the user to set several options that control rollrec-editor
       behavior.

       Ignore Edit Warnings/Don't Ignore Edit Warnings
           Certain operations perform validation checks on the contents of rollrec records.
           Warnings and errors may be reported by these checks.  This option controls whether or
           not warnings are flagged during validation.  If they are flagged, then the operation
           will not continue until the warning condition is fixed or the operation canceled.  If
           the warnings are ignored, then the operation will complete without the condition being
           fixed.

           This command is a toggle that switches between Ignore Edit Warnings mode and Don't
           Ignore Edit Warnings mode.

       Filter Name Selection/Don't Filter Name Selection
           When opening rollrec files for editing or merging, a file-selection dialog box is
           displayed to allow the user to select a rollrec file.  This option controls whether a
           filename filter is used by the dialog box.  If Filter Names Selection mode is used,
           then only regular files with a suffix of .rrf will be displayed by the dialog box.  If
           Don't Filter Name Selection mode is used, then all regular files will be displayed by
           the dialog box.

           This command is a toggle that switches between Filter Name Selection display and Don't
           Filter Name Selection display.

       Columns in Button Window
           Set the number of columns used in the Button Window.  See the Button Window Layout
           section for more information on columns in the Button Window.

   Help Menu
       The Help Menu contains commands for getting assistance.

       Help
           Display a help window.
