hmm, i have found another possibility to do it
(note that im a total newbie)i noticed my gethostname()
returns "maximilian-1" and if i do a getfqdn() i get MAXIMILIAN, so
it cuts something off, is there a limit of 10 chars and uppercase for
if yes, i could do a gethostbyname_ex(myaddr that i got with the old
way could be any if there are more), then i take the first part of
the triple(though i don't know how to handle tuples and triples, like
lists?) and do a gethostbyaddr() and then read that out.
the trick is: internet domains you get are normally longer than 10
chars, right?, and i could in addition check if they are totally
uppercase(how??). so then i just check all that for all the ips i got
and if the hostname is not only uppercase and len is bigger then 10,
i got the right address.
