cli-sedHow can I use CLI sed to create a new VPC?

Using the sed command line interface (CLI) you can create a new Virtual Private Network (VPC). The following example will create a VPC with the name "myVPC" in the us-east-1 region:

aws ec2 create-vpc --cidr-block --region us-east-1 --output text | sed -n -e 's/^VPCID\t//p'

The output of this command will be the VPC ID of the newly created VPC.

The code consists of 4 parts:

  1. aws ec2 create-vpc: This command creates a new VPC.
  2. --cidr-block This specifies the IP range for the VPC.
  3. --region us-east-1: This specifies the region in which to create the VPC.
  4. --output text: This specifies the output format.
  5. sed -n -e 's/^VPCID\t//p': This command parses the output of the create-vpc command to get the VPC ID.
