I tried to reproduce the grepable output in this example:
but I couldn't get it to show me the "Ignored State: closed (251)". The
problem is that Nmap's handling of multiple ignored states leaves the
ignored state as PORT_UNKNOWN when it is finished, and the grepable
output correctly sees that there are no ports in this "ignored" state,
and it doesn't print anything.
I have attached a patch that restores the output, but only in the case
that there is exactly one ignored state. I don't know what it should do
if there are more than that. I didn't test the patch against a machine
with more than one ignored state because I couldn't find one.
Looks good to me. Since the grepable output format is deprecated, I
think it is OK that it not support multiple ignored states unless we
see demand from users that it do so.
