comment Script or tool to get the IP address of a remote host
Most stacks prefer IPv6, if available; consequently, you probably want tail -n 1 at the top level, as well, if you want to mirror the host's resolve order. Then again, this whole approach also doesn't respect NIS, or /etc/hosts, or nsswitch.conf, and yet I use it regularly nonetheless on machines where resolveip -s isn't necessarily available, so perhaps I'm being a bit too pedantic. ;)
