usage: ether-wake [-i <ifname>] [-p aa:bb:cc:dd[:ee:ff]] 00:11:22:33:44:55

	This program generates and transmits a Wake-On-LAN (WOL) "Magic 
Packet",	used for restarting machines that have been 
	(ACPI D3-warm state).  It currently generates the standard AMD 
Magic Packet

	of the machine to wake.  This is typically retrieved with the 
	program while the target machine is awake.

		-b	Send wake-up packet to the broadcast address.
		-D	Increase the debug level.
		-i ifname	Use interface IFNAME instead of the 
default 'eth0'.
		-p <pw>		Append the four or six byte password PW 
to the packet.
					A password is only required for a 
few adapter types.
					The password may be specified in 
ethernet hex format
					or dotted decimal (Internet

The sample above may include artifacts from posting to bugzilla, but
the results at an 80 column console aren't much better.
