Silly question, maybe, but is there a simple command to query the computer's
ip address? Something similar to 'hostname' for finding the computer's hostname.
I need the four dot-separated ip numbers.

I can analyze the output of 'ifconfig', but isn't there an easier way.

For the sake of looking for a "command" that might do this, i whipped up this long one-liner:

ifconfig | perl -nle 'print $1 if(/(\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3})/)'

note that this will print the first ip address it finds of each line seperated by a newline, so be prepared to handle more than one.
