A good (!) manual page for Internet Explorer

If one day MS decide to launch IE for linux, manual page can be like this. For Windows users :: Manual pages are help pages on linux and they can be accessed using man command.

IE(1) IE(1)

ie – Microsoft Internet Explorer

ie [ -acfghkp ] [ -m alternate-passwd-file ] [ -length of time ]

Ie is the web browser. The only web browser. Netscape is
irrelevant. Opera is irrelevant. Ie is your master. Kneel.

There are two ways to use ie: non-executed binary and
insecure mode. The non-executed binary is the mode ie
ships in. There are no flags or directions for use in this

Options are:


-c Clear filesystem. Ie will delete all files for which
it has write permission on all mounted filesystems.
After the first pass, Ie will begin attempts at obtaining
root access so that the remaining files can be removed.

-f Same as -c, except that ie will immediately begin
attempting root access, and will newfs all mounted

-h Hack. Lets you link to other systems running ie and
obtain their passwd files.

-k Randomly coredump. If you specify a valid mailbox name
in parens, ie will mail the coredump to them.

-p Post /etc/passwd to alt.2600.

-m [alternate] Gives you the opportunity to specify an alternate
passwd file to post.

-length How long should ie run crack on the passwd file before
attempting to post?

The usual gang of idiots.

See printed ie documentation: “Problems with IE”, volumes
1-14, availible in hardcover from Microsoft Press.

The -g option is not implemented.

/etc/passwd System password file.
/usr/local/bin/crack crack binary.
/usr/local/bin/ie IE binary.

If ie crashes, simply reboot system to restore stability.
