DESCRIPTION
       The  dns-rev  program  is used to generate the reverse name mapping for
       .in-addr.arpa addresses for DNS to use.

       If the input file is not	named, or the name '-' is used,	 the  standard
       input is	read.

       If the output file is not named,	or the name '-'	is used, the startdard
       output is written.

OPTIONS
       The following options are understood:

       -Network_Mask number
	       Set the network mask to the number given.  This	should	be  in
	       the useual dot notation.	 Defaults to the 255.255.255.0 class C
	       mask.

       -Network	number
	       Set the network to the number given.  This  should  be  in  the
	       usual  dot  notation.   Need  not be given if there is only one
	       network in the input file.

       -Verbose
	       This option may be used to see what dns-rev deciphers each  re-
	       source record as.

       -Automatic_Time_Stamp
	       This  option may	be used	to automatically update	the time stamp
	       in SOA records based on the current time.  The time stamp  will
	       have a granularuty of 86	seconds.

       -Delete_Foreign_Names
	       This option may be used to delete A and NS records which	refer-
	       ence names in domains outside the domain	specified in the clos-
	       est  preceeding SOA record.  This is of most se in removing ex-
	       ternal name servers from	the reverse maps.

	       used th dns-rev program.
