       zonec - NSD zone compiler version 3.2.5.


       zonec  [-v]  [-h]  [-C]  [-L]  [-F]  [-c configfile] [-d directory] [-o
       origin] [-z zonefile] [-f database]


       Zonec is the nsd(8) database compiler for creating name space databases
       from a set of input master zone files specified in nsd.conf(5) file.

       It  is  normally  invoked via nsdc(8) rebuild command.  Zonec will then
       parse every zone in nsd.conf(5) file and  add  it  to  the  name  space
       database,  /var/db/nsd/nsd.db  by  default,  that  is used by nsd(8) to
       answer incoming queries.


       -c configfile
              Read   specified   configfile    instead    of    the    default

       -C     No config file is read (use with -f, -o and -z).

       -d directory
              Change the working directory to directory before doing any work.
              Overrides zonesdir: option in config file.

       -f database
              Create the specified database instead of the file  specified  as
              database: in the config file.

       -o origin
              Use  this  as  the  first  origin. Zone information is read from
              zonefile specified with -z. When reading zones from config  file
              this option is ignored.

       -z zonefile
              Reads  all  zone  information from zonefile.  If zonefile equals
              ‘-‘, then all  zone  information  is  read  from  stdin,  making
              constructs like:

              # cat zones* | ./zonec -C -f nsd.db -o -z -

              possible.  When  reading  zones  from config file this option is

       -v     Increase the verbosity of zonec.  This  flag  can  be  specified
              multiple  times  to  increase  the level of verbosity. The first
              level of verbosity will print per zone summary information.  The
              second  level of will print progress information for each 10,000
              RRs processed.

       -F     Set debug facilities. (If compiled with --enable-checking.)

       -L     Set debug level. (If compiled with --enable-checking.)

              default NSD configuration file


       Zonec will log all the problems  via  the  standard  error  output  and
       progress via stdout if the v option is specified.

       Zonec  has  rather  weak  error diagnostics that will change in further
       versions.  Zonec expects the input files to be free  of  syntax  errors
       and very little fool proof checks are done.
