	The perl script in this directory should work on any platform
that supports Perl.  It does need one additional Perl module called
Net::RawIP; this is used to both sniff the unreachables off the wire and
create the BCC copies.

	To do this, take the following steps as root/Administrator on
the system that will be running dibs.pl:

perl -MCPAN -eshell

	If you've never used CPAN before, you'll be asked:

"Are you ready for manual configuration?"

	Here you can either answer the individual prompts, or simply
answer "no" which causes the CPAN module to work with defaults.
	When you get a "cpan>" prompt back, run:

install Net::RawIP

	This should download, compile, and install the Net::RawIP module
on your system.  If there are no errors, you should be able to run
dibs.pl now as root/Administrator:

perl dibs.pl

	I have found that on some platforms, Net::RawIP-0.1 does _not_
compile; it fails with the following errors:

RawIP.xs: In function `ip_opts_creat':
RawIP.xs:444: error: label at end of compound statement
RawIP.xs: In function `tcp_opts_creat':
RawIP.xs:543: error: label at end of compound statement

	I have a patch that fixes this at
http://www.stearns.org/patches/Net-RawIP-0.1-default-label-patch .  I
have an RPM with this patch applied at http://www.stearns.org/perl/

	Sorry about the headache; I'm hoping the author of the package
uploads a new version at some point.

Compatibility notes:

	The script works on:
- Redhat Linux
- Fedora Core Linux

	It is believed to have problems on:
- Mac OS/X (incomplete ethernet support in Perl)

- Windows with Activestate Perl
- Windows with Cygwin

To be fixed:

	At the moment, the script has a hardcoded interface of "eth0". 
If you need to change this, please edit the script - I'll do a command
line parameter for this soon.
