Geo Location of an IP-address

wget -qO - whatismyipaddress.com/ip/<type ip address> | grep -E "City:|Country:" | sed 's:<tr><th>::'| sed 's</th>::' | sed 's:</td>::' | sed 's:</tr>::' | sed 's:<img*::'
This command will help you to get Ip address origin of city and country. I will be happy if someone can shrink the sed command fb.me/josenirmal
Sample Output
Country:<name of the country>
City:<name of the city>

  • Just a few minor changes. First the usage of lynx instead of curl so no sed is needed to revert the spaces. Then the usages of egrep instead of grep -e to save a few characters and last the removal of the extra 0. Show Sample Output


    0
    findlocation() {place=`echo $@`; lynx -dump "http://maps.google.com/maps/geo?output=json&oe=utf-8&q=$place" | egrep "address|coordinates" | sed -e 's/^ *//' -e 's/"//g' -e 's/address/Full Address/';}
