This example uses the 'ifconfig' but with a little bit of grep to weed out the crap
- #1. Use ifconfig and pipe ( | ) it into grep which will search for the 'inet' field
- #2. Pipe the data once again into grep and reverse the logic of the search (-v) to remove 126.96.36.199.1. Using -v will match all the lines that do not match 127.0.0.1 (aka loopback)
- #3. Use Cut to show the second field in the line, using spaces as a delimiter
- ifconfig | grep 'inet ' | grep -v 127.0.0.1 | cut -d\ -f2
