Gets the IP addresses of all interfaces except loopback. Cuts out all of the extra text.
Shorter than the other options, and much easier to type.
'ifconfig | grep cast' is enough to get the IP address, but it doesn't strip the rest of the junk out.
There are 6 alternatives - vote for the best!
This doesn't make any assumptions about your IP address and prints out one IP address per line if you have multiple network interfaces.
This assumes your local ip starts with 192.something (e.g. 192.168), it greps ifconfig output for an ip that starts with 192, then strips the extra garbage (besides the ip)
Maybe `ifconfig | grep addr | grep Bcast` would also do it
