The most widely ported operating system in the world:
>Release:        NetBSD-1.3I
System: NetBSD 1.3I NetBSD 1.3I (BUCOLIC) #0: Sat Jan 23 02:59:56 PST 1999     root@:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/BUCOLIC i386

	The output of ipmon presents lines like:
	23:37:03.489447 we1 @0:14 b,80 ->,65461 PR tcp len 20 40 -R
	However, while much of the output is obvious, some of the
	fields don't have an obvious explanation. (To me, the @0:14,
	the PR, and the last two fields.) The ipmon or some other
	manpage should document what they do.
	Run ipmon and look at the output.
