access minecraft rcon through bash

  1. Hello system administrators. I have a simple question but I guess the answer will not be as simple.

    How can I access the Minecraft rcon of an vanilla (rcon already activated) server through bash?

    I would like to not install python or similar just to get this task done. So I am looking for a bash solution.

    For reference: I am running a debian-jessie LTS server on the latest patches.

  2. I know you're looking for a bash solution, but I'd like to point out python is probably already installed. If it's not I'd be extremely surprised.
  3. Its not, thats the point ;) but thanks anyway.
    I will check out the script as soon as possible.

    ---edit 1---

    Hmm the scipt is not working for me at the moment, will look over it again later.
