+.SH DESCRIPTION
+The
+.B flower
+filter matches flows to the set of keys specified and assigns an arbitrarily
+chosen class ID to packets belonging to them. Additionally (or alternatively) an
+action from the generic action framework may be called.
+.SH OPTIONS
+.TP
+.BI action " ACTION_SPEC"
+Apply an action from the generic actions framework on matching packets.
+.TP
+.BI classid " CLASSID"
+Specify a class to pass matching packets on to.
+.I CLASSID
+is in the form
+.BR X : Y ", while " X " and " Y
+are interpreted as numbers in hexadecimal format.
+.TP
+.BI indev " ifname"
+Match on incoming interface name. Obviously this makes sense only for forwarded
+flows.
+.I ifname
+is the name of an interface which must exist at the time of
+.B tc
+invocation.
+.TP
+.BI dst_mac " mac_address"
+.TQ
+.BI src_mac " mac_address"
+Match on source or destination MAC address.
+.TP
+.BI eth_type " ETH_TYPE"
+Match on layer three protocol.
+.I ETH_TYPE
+may be either
+.BR ipv4 , ipv6
+or an unsigned 16bit value in hexadecimal format.
+.TP
+.BI ip_proto " IP_PROTO"
+Match on layer four protocol.
+.I IP_PROTO
+may be either
+.BR tcp , udp
+or an unsigned 8bit value in hexadecimal format.
+.TP
+.BI dst_ip " ADDRESS"
+.TQ
+.BI src_ip " ADDRESS"
+Match on source or destination IP address.
+.I ADDRESS
+must be a valid IPv4 or IPv6 address, depending on
+.BR ether_type ,
+which has to be specified in beforehand.
+.TP
+.BI dst_port " NUMBER"
+.TQ
+.BI src_port " NUMBER"
+Match on layer 4 protocol source or destination port number. Only available for
+.BR ip_proto " values " udp " and " tcp ,
+which has to be specified in beforehand.
+.SH NOTES
+As stated above where applicable, matches of a certain layer implicitly depend
+on the matches of the next lower layer. Precisely, layer one and two matches (
+.BR indev , dst_mac , src_mac " and " eth_type )
+have no dependency, layer three matches (
+.BR ip_proto , dst_ip " and " src_ip )
+require
+.B eth_type
+being set to either
+.BR ipv4 " or " ipv6 ,
+and finally layer four matches (
+.BR dst_port " and " src_port )
+depend on
+.B ip_proto
+being set to either
+.BR tcp " or " udp .
+.P
+There can be only used one mask per one prio. If user needs to specify different
+mask, he has to use different prio.
