please suggest a way to use an available linux script which will grab two xml files and substitute some variables.

this script needs to be able to extract the private ip of the system, which is the substituted value for those variables.

they are some tomcat config files, like server.xml

that's say you have one tag that says

<Engine name="Catalina" defaultHost="localhost">

and I remove "localhost" and put in ${ipaddress} >

the script should sub ${ipaddress} with the numeric address like 192.168.1.210, after it reads the numerical address from ifconfig command.

IP=`ifconfig  | grep 'inet addr:'| grep -v '127.0.0.1' | cut -d: -f2 | awk '{ print $1}'`
sed  "s/\${ipaddress}/$IP/g"  server.xml  > server.xml_new
/bin/mv -f  server.xml_new   server.xml

After
sed  "s/\${ipaddress}/$IP/g"  server.xml  > server.xml_new
verify server.xml_new before "/bin/mv -f"

ifconfig gives me two addresses

one public, one private. identified as eth0 and eth1


as a result, when I ran

ifconfig  | grep 'inet addr:'| grep -v '127.0.0.1' | cut -d: -f2 | awk '{ print $1}

I get two ip addresses back. How do I get only one, the private one from eth1?
