Packages "pathchar" or "pchar"

Does this or the variant of exist as a package for openwrt?
pchar - Perform network measurements along an Internet path

http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/bionic/man8/pchar.8.html

It does not appear that they exist:

opkg update 
opkg list | grep pathchar
opkg list | grep pchar

both of these return no results.

You may be able to find other tools to do similar things -- just look through the packages that are available. Or, run this on a ubuntu/linux system connected to your router (rather than on the router itself).

Thanks for the reply. It skipped my mind that I have Ubuntu installed under WSL. I managed to install pchar without any problems. it doesn't appear to work for internet hosts. it keeps giving and error about "no response from the target host"
