On another note, why not go ahead and just add Net::Ping to your script so it will have the functionality instead of requiring you to pipe in output from ping?

use Net::Ping; my $ping = new Net::Ping ("icmp"); my $PING_TIMEOUT = 2; my $IP=$_; if ($ping->ping($IP, $PING_TIMEOUT)) { print "Ping Succeeded \n"; } else { print "Ping failed\n";} $ping->close();

Then you can just run your script with your IP as an argument...this would even make it easy to automate automate the script to run a list of IP's on a regular basis.

    Thanks all!
    The script is just a quick-and-dirty capture to quantify some outage times for a customer. Since I knew I could just grok the output from a ping -s on solaris, that is what I did - simple. Thanks for the ideas though, and I will use Net:Ping if I ever need to do this again.
