Filtering a list for the IP

I have the grep output;
#grep -nr '10.0.0.84' *
zones9/25/mydomain.tld:11:*   86400 IN A 10.0.0.84  ;Cl=2

I want the IP from that line - using a shell script.

Thanks alot

Hi MAVERICK,

grep x.x.x.x | sed 's/.* IN A \([^\.]*\.[^\.]*\.[^\.]*\.[^ ]*\).*/\1/'

Here's an example script

#!/bin/ksh
LINE="zones9/25/mydomain.tld:11:*   86400 IN A 10.0.0.84  ;Cl=2"
IP=`echo $LINE | awk '{print $5}' `
echo " the IP is $IP "
exit

hmm, yuzh's suggestion misses the matching part, I'd use:

awk '($5=="10.0.0.84"){print $5;exit;}' *

# feel free to improve in many ways ;-)

Sunnycoder: I was unable to get your suggestion to run
yuzh: your suggestion solved the immediate question
ahoffmann: I'm not particularly familiar with awk, but i'd love be :) This was a small part of a larger question

There is a follow-on question posted here;

You don't need the -n flag on grep as you're not using the output from it.

grep -r '10.0.0.84' | awk '{print $5}'

If you don't need to recurse, you use ahoffmann's suggestion.

"hmm, yuzh's suggestion misses the matching part, I'd use:"

I didn't forget!, I just can't see the point to use something like:
   
grep -r '10.0.0.84' * | awk '{print $5}'

reresult would be 10.0.0.84 or nothing.

you can use:

if `grep '10.0.0.84' *` ; then
    IP="10.0.0.84"
else
    echo "No such IP!"
fi

agreed, greenly assumed that the questioner replaces the/my grep pattern by a more generic one ;-)

Even though matching was not really required (I was processing a list) Thanks everyone for the tips on shell scripting - something i need to learn more on ;-)
