       mkchdr - creates a C header file from a type table


       mkchdr <tbl-file> [output-file]


       mkchdr  will  generate  a  C header file from the given type table.  The C data structures
       will be written to the given output file.  If an output file is not given, the C header is
       written to stdout.

       The  generated  C  data  structure  is  the value representation that table driven encoder
       expects (and decoder returns) for the type definitions in the given type table.  The table
       driven  encoder  and  decoder, etc.  routines do not use the generated header - they treat
       the data in a generic way.  The generated header file  simply  saves  you  the  hassle  of
       dealing with ASN.1 values in the same generic way.  Instead you get properly named structs
       and field names.  You do not need to use mkchdr to use the table driven encoders etc.  but
       it is recommended.

       There is no means of customizing the generated data structure.
