[lazarus] IP Address

That's exactly what I want to do.
I know IP addresses aren't assigned to the PC.  I was asking it as a general
question.  I didn't think I needed to get that specific.
Here is the question restated:
How do I get the IP address(es) of the network card(s) on a linux box?  I
don't want to use localhost because that IP address isn't usable outside
that PC.  In windows I do a gethostname then a GetHostByName which returns a
record containing the IP addresses.
