37         <para>ndrdump tries to parse the specified <replaceable>filename</replaceable>
38                 using Samba's parser for the specified pipe and function. The 
39                 third argument should be 
40                 either <emphasis>in</emphasis> or <emphasis>out</emphasis>, depending 
41                 on whether the data should be parsed as a request or a reply.</para>
42
43         <para>Running ndrdump without arguments will list the pipes for which 
44                 parsers are available.</para>
45
46         <para>Running ndrdump with one argument will list the functions that 
47                 Samba can parse for the specified pipe.</para>
48
49         <para>The primary function of ndrdump is debugging Samba's internal 
50                 DCE/RPC parsing functions. The file being parsed is usually 
51                 one exported by wiresharks <quote>Export selected packet bytes</quote> 
52                 function.</para>
53
54         <para>The context argument can be used to load context data from the request 
55                 packet when parsing reply packets (such as array lengths).</para>
