Manual Pages  — BOOTPEF


bootpef – BOOTP Extension File compiler



bootpef [-c chdir-path] [-d debug-level] [-f config-file] [client-name ...]


The bootpef utility builds the Extension Path files described by RFC 1497 (tag 18). If any client-name arguments are specified, then bootpef compiles the extension files for only those clients.


-c chdir-path
  Sets the current directory used by bootpef while creating extension files. This is useful when the extension file names are specified as relative pathnames, and bootpef needs to use the same current directory as the TFTP server (typically /tftpboot).
-d debug-level
  Sets the debug-level variable that controls the amount of debugging messages generated. For example, -d 4 will set the debugging level to 4.
-f config-file
  Set the name of the config file that specifies the option data to be sent to each client.

Do you laugh when the waiter drops a tray full of dishes? Unix weenies do. They're the first ones to laugh at hapless users, trying to figure out an error message that doesn't have anything to do with what they just typed.
