[ale] Access by host

You can do "whoami" to get effective user and "who am i" to get real
user with IP.  Unfortunately the former has no useful options but by
running both commands you should be able to get both the pieces of
information you want.

Of course if the user isn't someone that has done an su then just doing
"who am i" would be the way to go for both user and IP.

I need to write a program fired off by bash when someone logs
into a development system.  This program will update a file on login
and logout. 

Can anyone tell me if there is a more detailed version of 'whoami' that
will display the IP address?  Another solution would be do execute
tty and then who and extract info that way.
