     gensnmptree -- generate C and header files from a MIB description file


     gensnmptree [-helt] [-p prefix] [name ...]


     The gensnmptree utility is used to either generate C language tables and
     header files from a MIB description or to numeric OIDs from MIB descrip-
     tions. The first form is used only for maintaining the snmpd(1) daemon or
     for module writers.  The second form may be used by SNMP client program

     If the -e option is not used gensnmptree reads a MIB description from its
     standard input and creates two files: a C-file prefixtree.c containing a
     table used by snmpd(1) during PDU processing and a header file
     prefixtree.h containing appropriate declarations of the callback func-
     tions used in this table and the table itself.

     If the -e option is specified gensnmptree expects MIB variable names
     (only the last component) on its command line.  It reads a MIB specifica-
     tion from standard input and for each MIB variable name emits two C pre-
     processor defines on its standard output. One define OID_name can be used
     as an array initialized to initialize a struct asn_oid.  The other define
     OIDLEN_name contains the length of the OID.

     The options are as follows:

     -h 	  Print a short help page.

     -e 	  Enter extract mode.

     -l 	  Generate local preprocessor includes. This is used for boot-
		  strapping snmpd(1).

     -t 	  Instead of normal output print the resulting tree.

     -p prefix	  Prefix the file names and the table name with prefix.


     The syntax of the MIB description file can formally be specified as fol-

	   file := tree | tree file

	   tree := head elements ')'

	   entry := head ':' index STRING elements ')'

	   leaf := head TYPE STRING ACCESS ')'

	   column := head TYPE ACCESS ')'

	   head := '(' INT STRING

	   elements := EMPTY | elements element

	   o   UNSIGNED32 (same as GAUGE)
	   o   OID
	   o   COUNTER
	   o   GAUGE
	   o   COUNTER64

     ACCESS specifies the accessibility of the MIB variable (which operation
     can be performed) and is one of
	   o   GET
	   o   SET

     INT is a decimal integer and STRING is any string starting with a letter
     or underscore and consisting of letters, digits and underscores, that is
     not one of the keywords.


     The following MIB description describes the system group:

	   (1 internet
	     (2 mgmt
	       (1 mibII
		 (1 system
		   (1 sysDescr OCTETSTRING op_system_group GET)
		   (2 sysObjectId OID op_system_group GET)
		   (3 sysUpTime TIMETICKS op_system_group GET)
		   (4 sysContact OCTETSTRING op_system_group GET SET)
		   (5 sysName OCTETSTRING op_system_group GET SET)
		   (6 sysLocation OCTETSTRING op_system_group GET SET)
		   (7 sysServices INTEGER op_system_group GET)
		   (8 sysORLastChange TIMETICKS op_system_group GET)
		   (9 sysORTable
		     (1 sysOREntry : INTEGER op_or_table
		       (1 sysORIndex INTEGER)
		       (2 sysORID OID GET)
		       (3 sysORDescr OCTETSTRING GET)
		       (4 sysORUpTime TIMETICKS GET)
