Steve sent me a copy. I'm not sure that I like using "host" to get this
info. That pretty much requires that the host will be in DNS. Wouldn't
it make more sense to do a gethostbyname() or something so that you can
resolve from any hosts database?

Here's a respun script that changes the host call to:

getent hosts <host> | head -1 | cut -d' ' -f1
