What Others Think

Another case of trivial command added to another trivial command, resulting in a still trivial command. Most of the people reading this site can use netstat, and it takes someone really *special* to not know grep, yet still be on this site.

And yet another netstat command finds its way onto the site. The search bar must be invisible.

I don't care if this command is trivial or just another netstat. The output format is useful for me, maybe useful for other users or for someone that collects different ways to use netstats. :-)

lfcipriani, the appropriate resource for you would be 'man netstat', then, not this site.
