This is a lazy man , KISS , Linux question.
Is there a simple command to obtain JUST the address?
For example somethingsimilar to

system("hciconfig name ");

I have no issues extracting required data from temporary files, just curious if somebody has a simpler approach.

What I have tried:

I have used hcitool and hciconfig and then extracted JUST the bluetooth device address from the output (file) or any other data from file.

I am currently trying getaddrinfo, but so far no success.

You could use grep[^] to isolate the part of output you are interested in.
hciconfig name | grep "(isolating regular expression)"

Perfect solution , beats fiddling with "string".
Using grep still requires C++ code to get JUST the address or name of BT remote device.

The KISS solution is here:

returns both address and name
