Hi Kareem,

It currently reads from standard input. However, since people might want to
read from named files, please find:


The build instructions below still apply; however, we now also ship a
'pdns-tools' package that contains this and a bunch of other tools:

dnswasher: remove IP addresses from a DNS pcap file
dnsscope: provide query/response timing stats from DNS pcap file
dnsbulktest: send out many parallel queries to validate resolver performance
dnsdist: simple high performance UDP/TCP DNS load balancer
dnsreplay: replay existing DNS pcap files to compare nameservers
dnstcpbench: stress out nameservers over TCP/IP



Good luck!
