Using the converter

Convert a filter list

The converter allows you to convert a filter list into another format. Here, we'll convert filter.txt into the hosts format, and write the output to output.txt:

tblockc -C filter.txt -s hosts -o output.txt

Or:

tblockc --convert filter.txt --syntax hosts --output output.txt

Convert and specify the input format

By default, the converter detects the format of the input list. However, since this operation can be slow with huge blocklist, you can specify it manually. Here, the format of the filter.txt is adblockplus:

tblockc -C filter.txt -i adblockplus -s hosts -o output.txt

Or:

tblockc --convert filter.txt --input-syntax adblockplus --syntax hosts --output output.txt

Keep comments

By default, the converter only converts compatible rules. However, you can choose to also convert comments:

tblockc -Cc filter.txt -s hosts -o output.txt

Or:

tblockc --convert --comments filter.txt --syntax hosts --output output.txt
