I made an entry for ifconfig now cancelled just saying it is deprecated which is a useful information. This does not concern ip. Should I add ifconfig note again?
- Hi, when i added the stuff for ip, i figured why even mention a deprecated command, so i removed it. But thinking about it again,
- you are right it is usefull information. If someone comes from another unix, or older linux, and he or she wants to use ifconfig
- they should find Info on it in a wiki-search.
- I now added it in a Note: section under the heading for the "ip" command, because i still don't think we should give
- a deprecated command a whole section.

ifconfig (interface configuration) is a system administration utility in Unix-like operating systems to configure, control, and query TCP/IP network interface parameters from a command line interface (CLI) or in system configuration scripts. It is deprecated: the alternative is called ip.
