TABLEUTIL(1)		  BSD General Commands Manual		  TABLEUTIL(1)

NAME
     tableutil -- converts and performs	operations on tables

SYNOPSIS
     tableutil -c commands
     tableutil -f file
     tableutil -q type [file]

DESCRIPTION
     tableutil can be used to convert files with IP-addresses and ranges and
     aggregate networks.  The options are as follows:

     -c	commands
	     execute the commands specified by commands.

     -f	file
	     file is the name of the file with commands	to be loaded.

     -q	type [file]
	     Quick-convert file	from type to a CIDR-notation, as used by PF.
	     type can be either	'text' or 'p2b'. The text format accepts ad-
	     dresses on	the form 'n.n.n.n', 'n.n.n.n-n.n.n.n' or 'n.n.n.n/n'.
	     p2b is the	format used in the lists provided by blocklist.org. If
	     file is omitted, standard input is	assumed. p2b-files can be ei-
	     ther gzipped or uncompressed.

COMMAND	FILE/STRING
     The command file/string consists of a series of statements	separated by ;

GRAMMAR
     TODO...

EXAMPLES
     Example quick-conversion:

		   $ tableutil -q p2b ads.p2b.gz

     Example command-file:

		   # Assign some values	to some	variables
		   $range = { 192.168.0.0-192.168.2.255	};
		   $cidr = { 192.168.3.0/24 };
		   $text = load(text, "file_with_networks");
		   $p2b	= load(p2b, "ads.p2b.gz");

		   # Do	some calculations and store them in some other variables
		   $table1 = difference($p2b, $text);
		   $table2 = union($range, $cidr);
		   $table3 = invert( { 192.168.0.1 } );
		   $table4 = intersect(	{ 192.168.1.0-192.168.3.255 }, $range);

		   # Save some of the variables, and a bonus, to files.
		   save(cidr, "table1",	$table1);
		   save(range, "table2", $table2);
		   save(cidr, "table3",	$table3);
		   save(cidr, "table4",	$table4);
		   save(range, "table5", { 0.0.0.0/0 } );
		   save(single,	"table6", $cidr	);

RETURN VALUES
     tableutil can exit	with the following values:

     0 Command completed successfully.

     1 Invalid arguments supplied.

     -1	Internal error.

BUGS
     Many, probably. And the man-page needs improving.
