}my @ip_addresses = `/sbin/ifconfig | grep 'inet addr:' | sed -e 's/.*inet addr://' -e 's/ .*//'`
That's not very portable, especially running on a Windows box, or across
other platforms. For example, Mac OS X's inet lines for lo look like:
inet6 ::1 prefixlen 128
inet6 fe80::1 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1
inet 127.0.0.1 netmask 0xff000000
And if you choose to dismiss that as "Well, it's only going to run on this
box", then why not hardcode the IP in anyway?
