BIND2CSV2(1)		       MaraDNS reference		  BIND2CSV2(1)

NAME
       bind2csv2.py - convert zone files from BIND to MaraDNS compatible
       format

DESCRPTION
       MaraDNS 1.3 has BIND zone file support. This means it is	possible to
       use BIND	zone files in MaraDNS. This makes it easier for	people to use
       MaraDNS in mixed	DNS server environments.

       Instead of having direct	BIND zone file support,	MaraDNS	has a script,
       called bind2csv2.py, that converts BIND zone files in to	the "csv2"
       zone file format	that MaraDNS 1.2 and 1.3 use. The zone files generated
       by bind2csv2.py are not MaraDNS 1.2 compatible; MaraDNS 1.3 is needed
       to read zone files generated by bind2csv2.py.

       bind2csv2.py is a Python	script,	written	in version 2.2.3 of the	Python
       interpreter. The	script should be compatible with more recent versions
       of Python. The script assumes Python is the file	/usr/bin/python	on
       your system; if Python is located elsewhere on your system, please
       change the first	line of	bind2csv2.py. Naturally, you will need the
       Python interpreter installed on your system to use bind2csv2.py.	 This
       is a well-known open source language supported by most modern Linux and
       BSD distributions.

USAGE
       To use the script, enter	a directory containing BIND zone files,	and
       invoke the script thusly:

       bind2csv2.py -c zone1 zone2 zone3

       Substitute "zone1", "zone2", and	"zone3"	with a list of one or more
       BIND zone files you wish	be converted in	to MaraDNS 1.3 csv2 zone
       files.

       Once the	script is run, you should have files with names	like
       "zone1.csv2", "zone2.csv2", and "zone3.csv2". These files are csv2 zone
       files that MaraDNS will be able to parse. Copy these csv2 zone files to
       a place where MaraDNS can find the zone files.

       Should there already be a "zone1.csv2" file when	bind2csv2.py is	run,
       the "zone1.csv2"	file will be replaced.

OPTIONS
       None. Bind2csv2.py can only be used as above.

BUGS
       bind2csv2.py is not a perfect zone file converter. In particular,
       bind2csv2.py does not act like BIND when	NS records have	different
       TTLs. Please make sure all NS records in	your BIND zone files have the
       same TTL.

       In addition, bind2csv2.py also does not support all resource record
       types that BIND supports. Only the following RRs	are supported by
       bind2csv2.py: A AAAA AFSDB CNAME	GPOS HINFO ISDN	LOC MB MD MF MG	MINFO
       MR MX NS	NSAP PTR PX RP RT SOA SPF SRV TXT WKS X25
