I don't think that switch allows assigning ip addresses directly to ports, but you would be able to assign ip addresses to VLANs, and then assign ports to the VLAN.

See chapter 8 here:

HP ProCurve 2848 is a typical Layer2 switch with limited Layer 3 routing functionality. We can not assign Layer3 details on its ports because its not a Layer3 switch.

However we can set IP address in the VLAN interfaces.
config t
vlan 1
 ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0
 untagged 1- 4

Would setting the IP address against the vlan allow similar routing functionality to if the switch was layer 3?

Please elaborate what routing functionality we want here. Creating VLANs and let the different VLANs communicate. Or we want to route different VLAN traffic through a router, we need to know the router make in this scenario.

A Layer3 switch has mostly all functionality of a router except the NAT. You could assign an IP address to a switchport and connect that as a layer3 port to the router. But now as it is layer2, we need to configure the VLAN interfaces and connect it to the router as a trunk.

I'll admit to not being an expert on HP switches, but if it's anything like a Cisco layer-2 switch, you'll need a router connected via a trunk on the switch in order to do inter-vlan routing.
