fwt_list_route
- This command is used to list a route from the FWT table. The only
- parameter is the route ID. If you want to list all the routes in a
- table, start with rid=0, and keep incrementing rid until you get a
- "(null)" string. This function is similar to fwt_list. The only
- difference is the output format. Also note that this command is meant
- for debugging. It is expected that users will use fwt_lookup and
- fwt_list. One important reason for this is that the route id may change
- as the route table is altered.
