Not my script. Belongs to mathewbauer. Used without his permission.
This script gives a single line as shown in the sample output.
NOTE: I have blanked out the IP address for obvious security reasons. But you will get whatever is your IP if you run the script.
Tested working in bash.
That makes a function you can put in your ~/.bashrc to run it when you need in any term with an IP as argument
A function that takes a domain name as an argument
Show external IP and geolocation information.
Primary feature is the use of tee to echo IP _and_ send to geoiplookup command...Use IP as input for as many commands as you want with more >( [command] )
Requires MaxMind DB and geoiplookup tool.
Sample output has IP obfuscated on first line, lines 2-4 from having MaxMind Country && MaxMind City DBs installed
If you can do better, submit your command here.
