Modify output of ping to text file into a single line

command lineping

I am using a loop and this command to display my ping result in a text file:

ping.exe -n 1 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx>> trace.txt

The result is 8 lines of code!

Pinging xxxxx [xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx] with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=125

Ping statistics for xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:

Packets: Sent = 1, Received = 1, Lost = 0 (0% loss),

Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:

Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 0ms, Average = 0ms

I just would like to display the last line as I don't want a huge text file as result.

The perfect result would be:

Ping 11oct2011 16h56 : Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 0ms, Average = 0ms

Best Answer

sounds you would like tail.

ping test_server | tail -n 1

I got it with cygwin.
