( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Dear Monks,
I am a new perl user please be patient.
Here is my problem- Need to check the status for active interfaces on unix boxes(solaris, BSD). I am using the Net:Telnet module and getting the ouput from ifconfig -a command.
I need to parse the output to check the actine interfaces: How should I do it, read the details of the interface in an array and search for status, or any other better way of doing it. Thanks,
Here is text to parse-
------------------------------------------- em0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 inet netmask 0xffffff80 broadcast ether 00:07:e9:23:5a:cc media: autoselect (10baseT/UTP <half-duplex>) status: active supported media: autoselect 1000baseTX 1000baseTX <full-duplex +> em1: flags=8802<BROADCAST,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 ether 00:07:e9:23:5a:cd media: autoselect status: no carrier supported media: autoselect 1000baseTX 1000baseTX <full-duplex +> ti0: flags=8943<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,PROMISC,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 ether 00:60:cf:21:a3:4c media: autoselect (1000baseSX <full-duplex>) status: active supported media: autoselect 1000baseSX <full-duplex> 1000baseS +X ti1: flags=8943<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,PROMISC,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 ether 00:60:cf:21:a3:45 media: autoselect (1000baseSX <full-duplex>) status: active supported media: autoselect 1000baseSX <full-duplex> 1000baseS +X

edit (broquaint): added <code> tags

In reply to Need help to parse the text by GS

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.
