Question C-shell command to get system IP number?

Is there a C shell command (or script anyone knows of) that will return the IP number of the system? I know that 'hostname' returns the host name, but I need the IP number, and I cannot assume access to 'nslookup'. Smilie

You could try using "ifconfig -a".

ifconfig -a is a command i use on both linux and solaris platforms and it gives me details of my NIC, including IP address.
