BOOTPEF(8)                BSD System Manager's Manual               BOOTPEF(8)

NAME
     bootpef -- BOOTP Extension File compiler

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

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

OPTIONS
     -c chdir-path
             Sets the current directory used by bootpef while creating exten-
             sion 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 debug-
             ging messages generated.  For example, -d 4 will set the debug-
             ging level to 4.

     -f config-file
             Set the name of the config file that specifies the option data to
             be sent to each client.
