Hey everyone,
     I just put a new command line switch into Snort to put it into
"test mode".  This mode fires up the rules parser and lets you check
that Snort will load and parse all the rules, can access the output
directory and the network interface and give you a "thumbs up" if
everything is ok.  The switch to activate this mode is -T, all other
command line switches will work as normal, Snort just bails out right
before going into the packet processing loop.  Try it out and let me
know what you think of it...

    -Marty
