       shaperd - traffic shaper for tcp-ip networks


       shaperd [-h] [-v] [-c file ]


       shaperd is a user-mode program that can shape traffic passing through a
       linux box. As it runs as a normal  daemon  process,  packet  forwarding
       to/from  the  kernel  can  be  done  by  the  BSD  divert sockets layer
       (available as a patch for the  linux  kernel)  or  by  the  ipq  packet
       forwarding library that comes with kernel 2.4.

       The  configuration  is  made  via  a  single text file, you can force a
       reload  by  sending  a  SIGHUP.  Logs  are  routed  via  syslog,   with
       priority=info, facility=daemon.

       Please  note  that,  for the moment, you must instruct the kernel which
       packets to forward to shaperd.  This can be done, for example, with the
       ipchains(8)  utility  under  Linux 2.2, or with iptables(8) under Linux
       2.4. Also, note that if a packet does not match any of the rules in the
       configuration  file,  it  will  be  ignored  by shaperd (but it will be
       logged if the log level is high enough).


       -c config-file
              Tells the daemon to get its configuration from this config-file

       -h     Summarizes command line options

       -v     Prints version information

       do i kill them? become their friend?
       do i eat them? raw or well done
       do i trick them? i ... i don’t think they’re that dumb
       do i join them? looks like that’s the one
       i got bugs on my skin tickle my nausea
       i let it happen again they’re always taking over
       i see they surround me i see ... see them deciding my fate
       oh that which was once was once up to me ... now it’s too late
       i got bugs in my room one on one
       that’s when i had a chance
       i’ll just stop now i’ll become naked, and with them i’ll become one
