Description can be found in traceroute(8), all the references to IP
replaced to IPv6. It is needless to copy the description from there.
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
<firstname.lastname@example.org>. And eventually entered iputils package.
tracepath6 requires CAP_NET_RAW capability to be executed. It is safe to
be used as set-uid root.
traceroute6 is part of iputils package.
