     snmpc(command) - SNMP MIB compiler frontend

     The  snmpc  program  provides a way to run the SNMP MIB com-
     piler of the Erlang system.

     snmpc [options] file.mib | file.bin

          snmpc compile a SNMP MIB file, see compile/1,2 for more

          It  can  also  be used to generate a header file (.hrl)
          with definitions of Erlang constants for the objects in
          the MIB, see mib_to_hrl/1.

     The following options are supported (note that most of these
     relate to the compilation of the MIB file):

         Prints help info.

         Prints application and mib format version.

       --verbosity verbosity:
         Print debug info.

         verbosity = trace | debug | log | info | silence

         Defaults to silence.

       --warnings | --W:
         Print warning messages.

       --wae | --Werror:
         Warnings as errors. Indicates  that  warnings  shall  be
         treated as errors.

       --o directory:
         The directory where the compiler should place the output
         files. If not specified, output files will be placed  in
         the current working directory.

       --i Directory:
         Specifies the path to search for imported (compiled) MIB
         files. By default,  the  current  working  directory  is
         always included.

User Commands                                   snmpc(command)(1)

         This  option  can  be  present  several times, each time
         specifying one path.

       --il Directory:
         This option (include_lib), specifies a list of  directo-
         ries  to  search  for imported MIBs. It assumes that the
         first element in the directory name  corresponds  to  an
         OTP  application.  The  compiler  will  find the current
         installed version. For example, the value ["snmp/mibs/"]
         will  be  replaced  by ["snmp-3.1.1/mibs/"] (or what the
         current version may  be  in  the  system).  The  current
         directory  and  the  "snmp-home"/priv/mibs/  are  always
         listed last in the include path.

         This option (skip group check), if present, disables the
         group  check  of  the  mib compiler. That is, should the
         OBJECT-GROUP  and  the  NOTIFICATION-GROUP  macro(s)  be
         checked for correctness or not.

         Keep deprecated definition(s). If not specified the com-
         piler will ignore deprecated definitions.

         The DESCRIPTION field will be included.

         The REFERENCE field will be included.

         The IMPORTS field will be included.

         The MODULE-IDENTITY field will be included.

         The MODULE-COMPLIANCE field will be included.

         The AGENT-CAPABILITIES field will be included.

       --mod module:
         The module  which  implements  all  the  instrumentation

         The  name  of  all instrumentation functions must be the
         same as the corresponding managed object it  implements.

         The  default  instrumentation functions will not be used
         if a managed object have  no  instrumentation  function.

         Instead  this will be reported as an error, and the com-
         pilation aborts.

         This option, if present, specifies  that  the  row  name
         assign check shall not be done strictly according to the
         SMI (which allows only the value 1).

         With this  option,  all  values  greater  than  zero  is
         allowed  (>=  1). This means that the error will be con-
         verted to a warning.

         By default it is not included, but  if  this  option  is
         present it will be.
