Traceroute-2.0.12

Description

There's a new implementation of Traceroute that appears to me to be much more robust than the ages old version currently in the book.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/traceroute

It doesn't install SUID. Instructions are simply:

make
make prefix=/usr install

Installs traceroute in /usr/bin and a man file in the man8 dir (which probably should be fixed to be in man1).

Fixed at revision 7697.

I left the manpage in man8 because man8 is for system administration commands and traceroute certainly falls into that category.
