Little tricks

How do I get the IP Address of a server? by missbarbell
Posted: 29 Apr 03 (Edited 14 Jul 03)

If you need to find out the IP Address of the server, upon which your script is running, try the following code snippet:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w
use strict;

use Socket 'inet_ntoa';
use Sys::Hostname 'hostname';
my $addr = inet_ntoa(scalar gethostbyname(hostname() || 'localhost'));
print "$addr\n";

This uses Perl core modules, so you shouldn't need to do any installing.
