It doesn't seem to be according to the OS X "man route" (which is lifted
directly from BSD, according to the page). Here's a snip:
ROUTE(8) BSD System Manager's Manual
route -- manually manipulate the routing tables
route [-dnqtv] command [[modifiers] args]
The route utility provides six commands:
add Add a route.
flush Remove all routes.
delete Delete a specific route.
change Change aspects of a route (such as its gateway).
get Lookup and display the route for a destination.
monitor Continuously report any changes to the routing
information base, routing lookup misses, or suspected network partitionings.
The other commands have the following syntax:
route [-n] command [-net | -host] [-ifscope boundif]
destination gateway [netmask]
where destination is the destination host or network, gateway is
the next-hop intermediary via which packets should be routed. Routes to
a particular host may be distin-
guished from those to a network by interpreting the Internet
address specified as the destination argument. The optional modifiers
- -net and -host force the destination to
be interpreted as a network or a host, respectively. Otherwise, if
the destination has a ``local address part'' of INADDR_ANY (0.0.0.0), or
if the destination is the sym-
bolic name of a network, then the route is assumed to be to a
network; otherwise, it is presumed to be a route to a host. Optionally,
the destination could also be speci-
fied in the net/bits format.
Maybe that'll help.
