If you are tired typing netstat -nr | grep ^x.x.x.x

Might be very obvious for some but in case your routing table is long and you need to search for routes with grep, you might want to add a "shortcut" as follows

 

echo '#!/bin/bash'>/usr/bin/showroute; echo 'netstat -nr|grep ^$1'>/usr/bin/showroute; chmod +x /usr/bin/showroute

 

then use showroute as your command instead of netstat to find routes, i.e

 

 

of course you can change showroute alias to something else
