Hackers, In https://reviews.freebsd.org/D34882 I propose to split ping's option -f into two options: one for flooding with ICMP (-f, no change in behavior) and one for affecting the programs output (-., a new option). That way we would be able to ping a host and not spam the terminal, and no flooding would have to be involved. I've been doing this under Linux as ping -fi1 host. PS. In D32943, D32944, D32945 I implement the base64 command. Piotr
