jc - JSON Convert ifconfig command output parser

No ifconfig options are supported.

Consider using the ip command instead of ifconfig as it supports native JSON output.

Usage (cli):

$ ifconfig | jc --ifconfig

or

$ jc ifconfig

Usage (module):

import jc
result = jc.parse('ifconfig', ifconfig_command_output)

[0] these fields only pick up the last IP address in the interface
    output and are here for backwards compatibility. For information on
    all IP addresses, use the `ipv4` and `ipv6` objects which contain an
    array of IP address objects.
