nsd-zonec - NSD zone compiler version 3.2.5.
nsd-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/nsd/db/nsd.db by default, that is used by nsd(8) to
answer incoming queries.
Read specified configfile instead of the default /etc/nsd.conf.
-C No config file is read (use with -f, -o and -z).
Change the working directory to directory before doing any work.
Overrides zonesdir: option in config file.
Create the specified database instead of the file specified as
database: in the config file.
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.
Reads all zone information from zonefile. If zonefile equals
`-`, then all zone information is read from stdin, making
# cat zones* | ./nsd-zonec -C -f nsd.db -o example.net -z -
possible. When reading zones from config file this option is
-v Increase the verbosity of nsd-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
-F Set debug facilities. (If compiled with --enable-checking.)
-L Set debug level. (If compiled with --enable-checking.)
default NSD database
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.

NSD was written by NLnet Labs and RIPE NCC joint team. Please see
CREDITS file in the distribution for further details.
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.
