[Snort-users] Classification List and numeric values

  On a related question this topic, is there a way to get the numeric
values assigned to the classification list in classification.config?
The exact value I'm looking for is in the event.h, the struct
Event classification unsigned 32bit int.
I've looked through the code, but there's a lot of it, so i seem to
have missed it.
  If there's a file that those values are in, pointing me in the right
direction would be wonderful.

Thanks for the help.

Or whatever the path to that file is.  If you aren't sure where it is:

	cd /
	find . -type f -name classification.config -print

Or if it's installed:

	locate classification.config
