Your first problem is that the format of ifconfig -a may be different on different platforms. For example:

[root]# uname -s Linux [root]# ifconfig -a eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:C0:9F:XX:XX:XX inet addr:64.x.x.x Bcast:64.x.x.x Mask: UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:193891504 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:153456331 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:100 RX bytes:1718775511 (1639.1 Mb) TX bytes:3265401055 (3114.1 + Mb) Interrupt:16 Base address:0xecc0 Memory:fe100000-fe120000 lo Link encap:Local Loopback inet addr: Mask: UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1 RX packets:56540745 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:56540745 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 RX bytes:2665326103 (2541.8 Mb) TX bytes:2665326103 (2541.8 + Mb)

Anyway you need to find a good way to chunkify the data into records. Assuming you get it in a scalar split "\n\n" should probably do the trick. Then the first string in your chunk is the interface name and m/status:\s+(\S+)/ will give your status. That won't work on Linux.

for my $chunk (split "\n\n", $data) { my ($if) = $chunk =~ m/^(\S+)/; my ($status) = $chunk =~ m/status:\s*(\S+)/; print "$if: $status\n"; }

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
