A (typically Unix) TCP/IP utility which allows the user to
determine the route packets are taking to a particular
host. Traceroute works by increasing the "time to live"
value of packets and seeing how far they get, until they reach
the given destination; thus, a lengthening trail of hosts
passed through is built up.
