For example, route manual says:

route {-h|--help} [] Detailed usage syntax for specified AF.

What is meant by AF ? I tried to google the term but no success (found only something about an af-interface for Cisco routers).

  • I think we need more context. For example, in QoS, AF means Assured Forwarding, which is a classification for packets. – Ron Maupin Dec 19 '19 at 7:21

AF in this case is short for address family, ie. IPv4 or IPv6.
