bind2csv2 - convert zone files from BIND to MaraDNS compatible format


MaraDNS 1.3 has BIND zone file support. This means it is possible to use BIND zone files
in MaraDNS. This makes it easier for people to use MaraDNS in mixed DNS server

Instead of having direct BIND zone file support, MaraDNS has a script, called bind2csv2,
that converts BIND zone files in to the "csv2" zone file format that MaraDNS 1.2 and 1.3
use. The zone files generated by bind2csv2 are not MaraDNS 1.2 compatible; MaraDNS 1.3 is
needed to read zone files generated by bind2csv2.

bind2csv2 is a Python script, written in version 2.2.3 of the Python interpreter. The
script should be compatible with more recent versions of Python. The script assumes Python
is the file /usr/bin/python on your system; if Python is located elsewhere on your system,
please change the first line of bind2csv2. Naturally, you will need the Python interpreter
installed on your system to use bind2csv2. This is a well-known open source language
supported by most modern Linux and BSD distributions.


To use the script, enter a directory containing BIND zone files, and invoke the script

bind2csv2 -c zone1 zone2 zone3

Substitute "zone1", "zone2", and "zone3" with a list of one or more BIND zone files you
wish be converted in to MaraDNS 1.3 csv2 zone files.

Once the script is run, you should have files with names like "zone1.csv2", "zone2.csv2",
and "zone3.csv2". These files are csv2 zone files that MaraDNS will be able to parse. Copy
these csv2 zone files to a place where MaraDNS can find the zone files.

Should there already be a "zone1.csv2" file when bind2csv2 is run, the "zone1.csv2" file
will be replaced.


None. Bind2csv2 can only be used as above.
