in thread Getting net addy on localhost?

Well I have seen /etc/sysoncfig/network-scripts on other platforms. But I'll take your word on that. However this is one reason why I mentioned webmin which is ultra-cross-platform (even if a little ugly).

The problem with calling something like ifconfig is relying upon a standard output scheme across platforms... I doubt Sun does it similar to anybody else (afterall they have their own cron, grep, and ping etc.) UPDATE: I do suppose this |P is a bit GNU-centric ;-).

perl -p -e "s/(?:\w);([st])/'\$1/mg"
