ct2db [-v] [options]
There are no required options. If database options are omitted, saved
options from ~/.ct2db_rc are loaded (see -S). If the load fails,
ct2db will exit with an error.
ct2db is a traceroute tool output parser that stores parsed data in to a MySQL database. ct2db will automatically create the database if it doesn't exist, provided its database credentials permit it to do so. ct2db is programmed entirely in perl.
ct2db supports multiple traceroute implementations. Although far more
useful when parsing ctrace (http://pratyeka.org/ctrace) output,
ct2db will parse standard 4.3BSD traceroute(8) and Microsoft Windows(TM)
tracert output as well. It is quite likely that minor variations of
these implementations will parse at least partially, too.
IN THE CURRENT VERSION OF CT2DB, TRACEROUTE IMPLEMENTATIONS OTHER THAN
CTRACE 0.8 HAVE BEEN TEMPORARILY DISABLED

ct2db was developed as an add-on for the ctrace traceroute implementation.
Instead of implementing database output in ctrace, ct2db was created as a
seperate tool capable of parsing other traceroute(8) implementations.
