I assume that the format of the ifconfig -a output will always be the same; that is, interface followed by interface information. If that is the case, then the following code sample will work for you. NOTE:
1) the output of ifconfig -a has been stored in a file
2) the interface information is stored in a hash where the interface name is the key and its status is the value.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; my ($if, %hash, $key); open(FILE, "<f.txt"); while(<FILE>) { chomp $_; ($if = $_) =~ s/^(\w+?):.+/$1/ if $_ =~ m/^\w+:/; ($hash{$if} = $_) =~ s/.+status:\s+(.+)/$1/ if $_ =~ m/status/; } close(FILE); foreach $key (keys %hash) { print "$key: $hash{$key}\n"; } exit;
hope this helps,

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.
