These things get messy with line wrap. :-)

The items in the above example are, in order:
Rule (group:number) *
Disposition (b = blocked, p = passed)
"PR" is constant, meaning "protocol"
IP protocol (e.g. tcp, udp, etc.)
"len" is constant, meaning "length"
IP header length
Total packet length (including header)
For TCP only, TCP flags (Syn, Ack, Psh, Fin, Rst, Urg)
Direction (IN or OUT) **
* The group and number match the values displayed by "ipfstat -hnio",
though the formatting is less covenient in the latter.
** In m0n0wall, this is usually "IN", since m0n0wall's rules do most
filtering on the incoming sides of the interfaces. E.g. outbound traffic
from LAN->WAN is actually filtered as it comes in on LAN.
