netscript-compile - netscript ipfilter-defs compile back end.
netcript-compile [ -fhq ] [ -b max-backup-level ]
This manual page documents briefly the netscript-compile command from
the netscript router/firewall network configuration package.
This command is the back end to the netscript compile command
documented in netscript(8) manpage. See ipfilter-defs(5) for the
details on the definitions files in /etc/netscript/ipfilter-defs.
By default it checks to see if the relevant files in the
/etc/netscript/ipfilter-defs directory have been updated by comparing
their modification times to that of /etc/netscript/ipfilter-defs.conf,
and if updating is needed, it recompiles and re-creates the file. Up
to max-backup-levels of history are kept of previously compiled
/etc/netscript/ipfilter-defs.conf files, with a numeric extention in
order of increasing age.
Sets the maximum level of backups kept of previously compiled
files. This defaults to 2 (see /etc/netscript/netscript-
compile.conf), and it is also used by the netscript(8) compile
-f Force compile even though compile file is up to date with
definitions. The testing depends on the modification times of
the definition file inodes in the file system.

-q Quiet compile. This option suppresses informational progress
