Adding new scripts

NSE scripts are listed in a file named script.db. Having your NSE scripts included in this database allows you to call them directly by name (without the .nse extension). To add new scripts to your script.db database, you simply need to copy your .nse files to the scripts directory, which is usually <NMAP install>/scripts, and run the following command:

#nmap --script-updatedb
