     NAME
          ifcfg - simplistic script which replaces ifconfig IP
          management

     SYNOPSIS
          ifcfg [ DEVICE ] [ command ] ADDRESS

     DESCRIPTION
          This manual page documents briefly the ifcfg command.

          This is a simplistic script replacing one option of ifconfig
          , namely, IP address management. It not only adds addresses,
          but also carries out Duplicate Address Detection RFC-DHCP,
          sends unsolicited ARP to update the caches of other hosts
          sharing the interface, adds some control routes and restarts
          Router Discovery when it is necessary.
