NAME
       pppdump - convert PPP record file to readable format

SYNOPSIS
       pppdump [ -h | -p [ -d ]] [ -r ] [ -m mru ] [ file ...  ]

DESCRIPTION
       The  pppdump  utility  converts	the  files written using the record option of pppd into a
       human-readable format.  If one or more filenames are specified, pppdump will read each  in
       turn;  otherwise  it  will read its standard input.  In each case the result is written to
       standard output.

       The options are as follows:

       -h     Prints the bytes sent and received in hexadecimal.  If neither this option nor  the
	      -p  option  is  specified, the bytes are printed as the characters themselves, with
	      non-printing and non-ASCII characters printed as escape sequences.

       -p     Collects the bytes sent and received into PPP packets, interpreting the async  HDLC
	      framing  and  escape characters and checking the FCS (frame check sequence) of each
	      packet.  The packets are printed as hex values  and  as  characters  (non-printable
	      characters are printed as `.').

       -d     With  the  -p  option,  this option causes pppdump to decompress packets which have
	      been compressed with the BSD-Compress or Deflate methods.

       -r     Reverses the direction indicators, so that `sent' is printed for bytes  or  packets
	      received, and `rcvd' is printed for bytes or packets sent.

       -m mru Use  mru	as  the  MRU  (maximum receive unit) for both directions of the link when
	      checking for over-length PPP packets (with the -p option).
