    .                    UPDATING 
  Retire most of the classful network behaviour of netstat -r output, for IPv4.
   Without -n, we now only print a "network name" without the prefix length
   under the following conditions:
    1) the network address and mask matches a classful network prefix;
    2) getnetbyaddr(3) returns a network name for this network address.
   With -n, we unconditionally print the full unabbreviated CIDR network
   prefix in the form "a.b.c.d/p". is still printed as "default".
  This change is in preparation for changes such as equal-cost multipath, and
  to more generally assist operational deployment of FreeBSD as a modern IPv4
  router. There are currently no plans to backport this change.
