HISTORY
       This program has long history. Author of traceroute is Van Jacobson and
       it first appeared in 1988. This clone is based on a port of traceroute to
       IPv6 published in NRL IPv6 distribution in 1996. In turn, it was ported
       to Linux by Pedro Roque. After this it was kept in sync by Alexey
       Kuznetsov <kuznet@ms2.inr.ac.ru>. And eventually entered iputils package.

SECURITY
       tracepath6 requires CAP_NET_RAWIO capability to be executed. It is safe
       to be used as set-uid root.

       available in source form at http://www.skbuff.net/iputils/iputils-
