On what version of FreeBSD are you looking the
ipfirewall(4) man page?

Recently I needed the C api to ipfw, but it
turns out that ipfirewall(4) man page no longer
describes it. This is on 5.3-STABLE and 4.10-STABLE.
I also searched in google and I think I had found
a post saying that currently the only way to manipulate/use
firewall rules is via ifpw(8) command.

If someone can provide me a reference to the C api
of ipfw I will be thankfull.
