Interpreting the output ...

Hopefully, most messages reported by dciodvfy and dcentvfy should be self explanatory. In general, they are highly specific with respect to the problem, reporting for example, errors when a required (Type 1) Attribute is missing or an illegal Enumerated Value is present, or an Attribute has the wrong Value Representation, or has incorrectly encoded values, such as being too long, or containing too many values or containing illegal characters within values. Such errors are serious and rarely is there any excuse for the implementer in such circumstances. However, some errors and warnings require a little more explanation and/or interpretation in order to understand why they are occurring and whether or not they "matter".

Comments, criticism and general abuse are greatly appreciated and should be directed to dclunie@dclunie.com.
