p5.28-net-ping-external (perl/p5-net-ping-external) Add to my watchlist

Cross-platform interface to ICMP 'ping' utilities

Net::Ping::External is a module which interfaces with the 'ping' command on many systems. It presently provides a single function, 'ping()', that takes in a hostname and (optionally) a timeout and returns true if the host is alive, and false otherwise. Unless you have the ability (and willingness) to run your scripts as the superuser on your system, this module will probably provide more accurate results than Net::Ping will.
