so i'm trying to convert a bash script, that i wrote, into python, that i'm learning, and the python equivalent of the bash whois just can't give me the answer that i need.
this is what i have in bash-
whois 'ip address' | grep -i abuse | \
grep -o [[:alnum:]]*\@[[:alnum:]]*\.[[:alpha:]]* | sort -u
and it works perfectly.
when trying to do something similar in python(3.5.2)-
it's giving me a dictionary with the object that i'm looking for in the first value about half way through the string.
i have tried to put it into
, yet with each iteration the index changes so i can't put it into a script like that. also the bash whois can do both ip addresses and domain names with out having to convert.
i think that i have figured out the conversion, yet trying to grab the results from the IPWhois is giving me a pain in the butt.
i could call the bash
, yet would like to figure out how to do it in python. i know that i can grab part of it with
, yet again the return changes so
would have to change each time also.
do i keep trying or do i just stick with the bash script that works so well?
i have already written most of the python script and the things that i have to look up are helping me learn.
you can see the bash script here
