click-align

adds required Align elements to a Click configuration

SYNOPSIS

click-align [options] [param=value ...] [router-file]

DESCRIPTION

The click-align tool makes Click router configurations usable on machines that don't support unaligned accesses. It reads a router configuration file in the language language, adds any required Align elements, and writes the new configuration to the standard output.

Several Click elements, such as CheckIPHeader and ToLinux, have alignment requirements. The CheckIPHeader element, for example, expects that the packet begins with an IP header, and that this IP header is four-byte-aligned. Normally, Click does not guarantee this: elements cannot know how input packets will be aligned. The click-align tool first analyzes the router configuration, then inserts Align elements as required to ensure that packets will be properly aligned. It also adds an AlignmentInfo element so elements can figure out what packet alignment they can expect.

The list of alignment requirements is currently built in to the click-align tool and cannot be changed except by recompilation.

OPTIONS

If any filename argument is a single dash "-", click-align will use the standard input or output instead, as appropriate.

-e expr
--expr expr
