NAME

ifparse - parse ifconfig command line

SYNOPSIS

/sbin/ifparse [ -fs ] addr_family commands

DESCRIPTION

Use the ifparse command to parse the ifconfig(1M) command line options and output substrings, one per line, as appropriate. If no options are specified, ifparse returns the entire ifconfig command line as a series of substrings, one per line.

OPTIONS

The ifparse command supports the following options: -f Lists only substrings of the ifconfig command line that are relevant to IP network multipath failover -s Lists only substrings of the ifconfig command line that are not relevant to IP network multipath failover

OPERANDS

The ifparse command does not support the interface operand of the ifconfig command.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Parsing Command Line Options Relevant to Failover The following example shows the use of the ifparse command to parse the command line options relevant to IP network multipath failover: example# ifparse -f inet 1.2.3.4 up group one addif 1.2.3.5 -failover up set 1.2.3.4 up Example 2: Parsing Command Line Options That Are Not Relevant to Failover The following example shows the use of the ifparse command to parse the command line options that are not relevant to IP network multipath failover: example# ifparse -s inet 1.2.3.4 up group one addif 1.2.3.5 -failover up group one addif 1.2.3.5 -failover up Example 3: Parsing the Command Line For All Options The following example shows the use of the ifparse command to parse the command line for all ifconfig options: SunOS 5.8 Last change: 15 Feb 2001 1 Maintenance Commands ifparse(1M) example# ifparse inet 1.2.3.4 up group one addif 1.2.3.5 -failover up group one set 1.2.3.4 up addif 1.2.3.5 -failover up

DIAGNOSTICS

Message Set Message Entry Message: Message text: usage: -fs <addr_family> <commands> This message indicates an invalid command line. Message Entry Message: Message text: ifparse: Not enough space This message indicates insufficient memory. Message Entry Message: Message text: ifparse: dhcp not supported for inet6 DHCP operations are not supported for the inet6 address family. Message Entry SunOS 5.8 Last change: 15 Feb 2001 2 Maintenance Commands ifparse(1M) Message: Message text: ifparse: Operation <operation> not sup- ported for <addr_family> Most operations cannot be used with all address fami- lies. For example, the broadcast operation is not sup- ported on the inet6 address family. Message Entry Message: Message text: ifparse: no argument for <operation> Some operations, for example broadcast, require an argument.

NOTES

The ifparse command is classified as an obsolete interface. It will likely be removed in a future release. You should not develop applications that depend upon this interface. SunOS 5.8 Last change: 15 Feb 2001 3
