Well, I've been using the Linux "ip" command as the successor of "ipconfig" now for about 4-5 years. Never having read the manual page ever, only living by the online help of the command. The recent issue of the German computer magzine highlighted the usage of the "ip", many usages known to me. There were some gems in between however. Checkout the options (long form) '-color', '-brief', '-human' and '-json' (in combo with '-pretty) in the manual page.
