In random order:
* make the code compile with WARNS=5 (at least on i386), mostly
by adding 'const' specifier and replacing "void *" with "char *"
in places where pointer arithmetic was used.
This also spotted a few places where invalid tests (e.g. uint < 0)
* support ranges in "list" and "show" commands. Now you can say
ipfw show 100-1000 4000-8000
which is very convenient when you have large rulesets.
* implement comments in ipfw commands. These are implemented in the
kernel as O_NOP commands (which always match) whose body contains
the comment string. In userland, a comment is a C++-style comment:
ipfw add allow ip from me to any // i can talk to everybody
The choice of '//' versus '#' is somewhat arbitrary, but because
the preprocessor/readfile part of ipfw used to strip away '#',
I did not want to change this behaviour.
If a rule only contains a comment
ipfw add 1000 // this rule is just a comment
then it is stored as a 'count' rule (this is also to remind
the user that scanning through a rule is expensive).
* improve handling of flags (still to be completed).
ipfw_main() was written thinking of 'one rule per ipfw invocation',
and so flags are set and never cleared. With readfile/preprocessor
support, this changes and certain flags should be reset on each
line. For the time being, only fix handling of '-a' which
differentiates the "list" and "show" commands.
* rework the preprocessor support -- ipfw_main() already had most
of the parsing code, so i have moved in there the only missing
bit (stripping away '#' and comments) and removed the parsing
Also, add some more options (such as -c, -N, -S) to the readfile
MFC after: 3 days
