Get your local/private IP

localIP() { ifconfig ${1:--a} | sed '/Link encap\|inet\|6 addr/!d;s/Link encap.*$//;s/.*inet addr:\([0-9\.]*\).*/\1/g;s/.*inet6 addr: \(.*\) .*/\1/g' ; }
If you don't send an interface, it shows private IP address of all interfaces

What Others Think

That is not local/private IP. This script is a mess. The output of ifconfig is locale-dependent. Use "ip" instead.
