rancid.types.conf(5)	      File Formats Manual	  rancid.types.conf(5)

NAME
       rancid.types.conf - rancid device type configuration file

DESCRIPTION
       rancid.types.conf  contains  formatted  configuration lines that	define
       the device types	that are available for use in the <device_type>	 field
       of the router.db(5) configuration file.

       The  rancid.types.base  configuration  file follows the same format but
       defines the base	types described	in router.db(5).

       Users are STRONGLY discouraged from altering this  file	or  overriding
       the base	types in rancid.types.conf.  Instead, copy the type definition
       to be altered  from  rancid.types.base  to  rancid.types.conf  using  a
       different <device_type>.

SYNTAX
       One directive is	listed per-line, where the syntax is one of:

		 <device_type>;command;<filter_function>;<device_command_string>
		 <device_type>;inloop;<input_loop_function>
		 <device_type>;login;<login_program>
		 <device_type>;module;<perl_module_name>
		 <device_type>;prescript;<rancid_script> XXX temporary knob?  add this?
		 <device_type>;postscript;<rancid_script> XXX temporary	knob?  add this?
		 <device_type>;script;<rancid_script>

       For example:
		 cisco;login;clogin
		 cisco;module;rancid::ios
		 cisco;inloop;ios::inloop
		 cisco;command;ShowVersion;show	version
		 juniper;login;/usr/local/bin/jlogin
		 juniper;module;rancid::junos
		 juniper;inloop;junos::inloop
		 juniper;command;ShowVersion;show version

       <device_type>  is a lower case name used	in the router.db(5) file.  Its
       case is forced to lower case when reading the configuration files.

       Each <device_type> may have  the	 following  directives	defined.   The
       login and script	directives are required.

       command
	      Defines  commands	 to run	for the	<device_type> and the function
	      that will	process	the input.

       inloop Intended for rancid(1), inloop defines a function	to  loop  over
	      the  input  from the device.  It must have the calling signature
	      f($INPUT,	$OUTPUT).

       login  Defines the login	script used for	the <device_type>, which  does
	      not need to be an	FQPN, but then must be found in	the path.

       module Loads  a	rancid	perl  module  to  supply functions used	in the
	      command directives for the <device_type>.	 Multiple module lines
	      may  exist  for a	device type, they are loaded in	the order they
	      appear.

       script Defines the rancid script	used for the <device_type>, which does
	      not need to be an	FQPN, but then must be found in	the path.
