Description can be found in
all the references to IP replaced to IPv6. It is needless to copy
the description from there.

This program has long history. Author of <command/traceroute/
is Van Jacobson and it first appeared in 1988. This clone is
based on a port of <command/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
<ulink url="">Alexey Kuznetsov
&lt;;</ulink>. And eventually entered
<command/iputils/ package.
<command/tracepath6/ requires <constant/CAP_NET_RAW/ capability
to be executed. It is safe to be used as set-uid root.
<command/traceroute6/ is part of <filename/iputils/ package
and the latest versions are available in source form at
<ulink url=""></ulink>.
