If no argument then control the infinite loop the quiet parameter to hide messages on the screen setting. It is thus possible to script the ping command. example: ping -c 1 -q && echo echo || Link UP DOWN link example : ping (request infinite loop) ping -c 2 (request two ping echo) ping -c 2 -q (no echo on display) Is it possible to add these changes to the original code ?
