( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
This script came about by accident, when my Windows laptop somehow got its PATH temporarily messed up and couldn't resolve the "ipconfig" command. I'm used to typing "ifconfig" in Linux so I wrote this "ifconfig.pl" script for Windows; it's essentially a wrapper which reformats ipconfig's output in an easier-to-read format, and by default discards interfaces which are down or apply to VMs (VMware virtual machines).

It also gives useful information that the simple form of ipconfig lacks (eg. the adapter's MAC address -- to get it you have to use "ipconfig/all" which spews out even more information to wade through). Plus, you can easily spot from the "Connected" line in the header the indices of connected interfaces (when -a or -v is supplied).

Here's an output comparison, where less lines is arguably better when you're trying to get device information quickly:

ipconfig ......... 57 lines ipconfig/all ..... 121 lines (!) ifconfig.pl ...... 19 lines

Now that I'm using the script all the time I've added a feature to disable/reenable the network device by adding the argument ~N, where N is the index of the device displayed. This saves the hassle of having to open several dialog boxes to get to the network adapter settings, just to be able to cycle an interface that's down for some reason.
