Windows look-alike ping in Linux

A little script pinw.sh that I like to call “Winstyle++ ping”, because the output it’s similar to the ping command from Windows.

1. Download the script

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/oueta/linux.sh/master/pinw.sh

2. Change permissions

chmod +x pinw.sh

3. Execute

./pinw.sh google.com
