I am reading tcpdump trace files that my professor gave me. 

[root at localhost bro_files]# bro -r tcpdump/attack_file_8.tcpdump mt -w

I am writing them to 'attack8.scan', but that is a binary file which I
need to read with bro again. On that note, what is the proper
syntax/flag to use when reading bro output "as-is" with the bro

#bro -r attack8.scan <????>
