Lightbulb newbie

Hey, i am a newbie to unix scripting, do i just enter this code to get the info or is there more needed, all i know so far is using awk and grep to find the line of the information and just displaying that line, do u know a simple script to show this in use?

Code:
$ uname

$ uname -n
node_name

$ nslookup $(uname -n)
Using /etc/hosts on:  node_name

looking up FILES
Name:    node_name.domain.es
Address:  0.0.0.0
Aliases:  node_name

Lightbulb problem

for some reason i can not view any code in the code boxes at all in this forum, is there another way that you could show your code to me, i.e. dont post it as code or via e-mail?
