Waiting for maintainer's response (Alexey Kuznetsov <kuznet@ms2.inr.ac.ru>)
Comment 2 Pekka Savola 2001-06-20 16:21:44 EDT
I've talked with Alexey on this; he has created lots of docs in *.ps form (%doc), and man pages aren't forthcoming.

I started writing man page about ip(8), but only got about 1/3 way when I realized the syntax was so complex, 
it wouldn't be of much use; better just to create a short page with pointers to 'ip help' commands and the existing

Comment 3 Pekka Savola 2001-06-20 16:23:30 EDT
(btw, if you want what I did, just email me; I did global options, ip link, ip address and started on ip route)
Comment 4 Pekka Savola 2001-07-06 16:54:49 EDT
As mentioned in #30678, I'm attaching the beginnings of the page I was writing in 
case someone is interested.

beginnings of ip(8) man page.  Sigh.

Still no man page....

Considering how important this utility is, it would seem to be worth someones

page from the tex source?
Comment 7 Michele Baldessari 2002-03-05 06:14:03 EST
FYI: Over at lartc.org they made some manpages for the tc utils :

Comment 8 Michael K. Johnson 2002-03-05 11:37:45 EST
Even a man page that only said "See the reference documents:
ip reference: /usr/share/doc/iproute-2.2.4/ip-cref.ps"
etc. would be helpful.
Comment 9 Phil Knirsch 2002-03-14 19:24:03 EST
Updated to latest stable release and added a very simple manpage.

Available via rawhide real soon now(tm).

Read ya, Phil
