Description

By reading some SMF scripts I discovered that "/sbin/zonename" takes some parameters, at least "-t" to return the ip-type (shared or exclusive). There's nothing of the kind mentioned in neither the manpage, nor the command-line help (seems absent).

PRIMARY QUEST: Read the code and find used command-line params, and describe them in the manpage.
OPTIONAL QUEST: If there is indeed no "command-line help" blurb in the program, make one.

I may either:

1.) Close this because -t is supposed to be an undocumented private option. (It was introduced with IP instances to help zones know if they're exclusive-stack or not.)

2.) Assign it to a student I'm mentoring.

Regardless, it'll require a small amount of archeology, and I think that archeology in and of itself is a worthy student assignment.
