OPTIONS

A summary of options is included below.
-
Print usage message
-B filename
Generate objects and code in files named filename.*
-D N

-G
Generate object loader .c and .h files
-I str

-J type
Register type type with object manager
-K str
In generated .c, force name of #included asn header to str
-L str
Label registered type as str
-M filename,...
Search the ASN.1 modules in filename,... for external references
-N N
UTF8 input conversion:
0
Convert silently (default)
1

3
Do not convert
-P str

0
Convert silently (default)
1
Convert, post WARNING first time
2
Convert, post WARNING each time
3
Do not convert
-V
Force CHOICE objects to use custom structures rather than ValNodePtrs, for compatibility with some old hand-coded object loaders.
-X filename
Write XML DTD to filename. If filename is "m", print each module to a separate file.

-o filename
Write header to filename
-p filename
Write print values to filename
-t str
