Finding your current run lvl

The title says it all really. I am writing a shell script for a Linux box, and I have recently run into a problem. I need to make sure I am at a certain run level first.

Hence, the question. How can I find out what run level the box is currently running at?

Is there a system variable that I've overlooked or don't know about that I can use?

Please help me as soon as possible with this, as I am trying to finish this script by today. Thanks!...........SN

Okay I see. Thanks.

Do you know how I could strip the date that it outputs along with it? I looked at the man page and it doesn't give an option for striping the date...........SN

EDIT: Nevermind, I was able to figure out a way. Thanks for the help!
