I’m interested in getting the IP address of the current machine on the local network, but I cannot use any Java (i.e. [mxj net.local]). One possible solution would be to use the [shell] object or similar to run ‘ifconfig’ and parse the output, but last time I used the [shell] object, it was buggy.
Can you think of any alternatives? I’ve never written an external – do you think it would be simple to acquire this information from C?
