       smistrip - extract MIB or PIB modules from text files, like RFCs or I-Ds

       smistrip [ -Vhn ] [ -d dir ] [ -m module ] [ file(s) ]

       The  smistrip  program  is  used to extract MIB and PIB module files from ASCII documents like RFCs or Internet
       Drafts. Modules are identified by a starting ASN.1 DEFINITIONS clause and the matching END clause.  The  output
       is written to files named by the modules' names.

       -V     Show the smistrip version and exit.

       -h     Show a help text and exit.

       -n     Print only what would be extracted, but do not write any output file.

       -d dir Write module file(s) to directory dir instead of the current working directory.

       -m module
              Extract only the module module instead of all modules found in the input file(s).

              The  input  text  file(s)  from which modules will be extracted. If no file is given, input is read from

       Note that smistrip tries to be smart about locating module start and end, detecting page breaks and blank lines
       near  page breaks. It also tries to cut off blank prefixing columns from all lines of a modules. However, there
       might by documents that cannot be parsed correctly by smistrip and  probably  produce  incorrect  output.   You
       might consider to use smilint on every extracted module file to check its syntactical correctness.

       This  example  extracts  only  the  module  IPV6-MIB  from  the  file  rfc2465  and  writes it to the directory
         $ smistrip -d /usr/local/tmp -m IPV6-MIB rfc2465
