Reposting to correct HTML

This script is a bit ... well ... overly complicated. Why not just using a "for IP in `cat ${IPFILE}`" instead of the complicated mover routine? And why not simply make it a StartupItem and let it read the whole kaboozle from hostinfo, add a key named 'IP_ADDRESSES' and fill it with colon delimited values which you then split using cut, awk, sed, or something similar?

Overly complicated scripting ;p

For some purposes, that probably would be more elegant... the fashion of the script was needed because of the need I had to actually rotate through a list (rather than just searching it); if I run the script twice, I don't want to come up with the same IP.
Anyhoo, the important part is really the ipconfig and route stuff in the middle, which I certainly didn't find in any clear documentation anywhere (no man info on ipconfig, among other things)... the script was my own application of it. *shrug* took me a while to get working right, so I thought I'd share in case someone had a similar need.
