Question IPTables


I get the data about amount of data traversed through the chains of IPTables via command

iptables -nvxL

I want to the byte counts to manipulate and display it.......... Is the file operation by writing the output of above command is only option to access byte numbers?????

Can I use shell script???

Can I get the variable in which the data about byte count is stored???

Haven't see anything related in /proc/net or /proc/sys/net...

Use an array to hold values: 'COUNTERS=($(iptables -nvxL 2>&1|awk '/\// {print $2}'))'?
