I am in need of finding my local machine's IP address assigned to ETH0. I need to get the information independent of resolving a hostname. Instead, I need to pull information from something similar to ifconfig. I could certainly backtick the command into the code and parse out the information, but I would think there would be a cleaner, easier way. Aside from all of the nodes referencing how to find an ip address using Sys::Hostname
, I've only found one
that address my needs, and I don't think its the best way of doing things.
Is there a better manner, a module or built-in function that may do the trick?
