Access List Analyser/Auditor

Hi All,

     I have recently started in a new comany as its senior network engineer and have inherited a mess of Access Lists on Cat 6513s / ASAs and PIXs. Some of the ACLs on the 6513 have over 1000+ lines plus each and there are loads of them, and I know for a fact that they contain duplicate entries or entries that are negated by a ip any any or similar in the middle of the ACL.

     So I was wondering if anybody knows of a useful available tool that will take an imported ACL by a text file for instance, analyse that ACL and highlight any duplicate or negated ACL Entries. This would save me a headache from sifting through each ACL line by line. one ACL for example has 3000+ lines.

Any Help would be appreciated.
