rancid is a perl(1) script which uses the login scripts (see clogin(1))
to login to a device, execute commands to display the configuration,
etc, then filters the output for formatting, security, and so on.
rancid's product is a file with the name of it's last argument plus the
suffix .new. For example,

There are complementary scripts for other platforms and/or
manufacturers that are supported by rancid(1). Briefly, these are:

The command line options are as follows:

V Prints package name and version strings.

d Display debugging information.

l Display somewhat less debugging information.

f rancid should interpret the next argument as a filename which
contains the output it would normally collect from the device (
hostname) with clogin(1).

control_rancid(1), clogin(1), rancid.conf(5)

For Catalyst switches running CatOS, type cat5, the prompt must end
with '>'. clogin(1) looks for '>' to determine when a login is
successful. For example:

cat5k> enable
cat5k> (enable)

rancid works on Cisco Catalyst 1900 series switches that are running
Enterprise Edition software. This software provides a menu at
connection time that allows a command line interface to be used by
entering 'K' at the prompt.
