       snmpc(command) - SNMP MIB compiler frontend

       The  snmpc  program  provides a way to run the SNMP MIB compiler of the
       Erlang system.

       snmpc [options] file.mib | file.bin

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

              It can also be used to generate a header file (.hrl) with  defi-
              nitions  of  Erlang  constants  for  the objects in the MIB, see

       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

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

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

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

         --il Directory:
           This option (include_lib),  specifies  a  list  of  directories  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 compiler 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 functions.

           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 compilation 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 converted to a warning.

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