in reply to Net::Ping with threads

There was a problem with Net::Ping when using icmp pings in a thread. Essentially, there was no verification that the ping received is from the IP that the particular thread is pinging. This leads to problems that non-existant IPs are seen as being up. This problem is now fixed in the 2.33 release. Enjoy!


Test your modules with bleadperl!

  rsync -avz rsync:// .
  ./Configure -des -Dusedevel -Dprefix=/path/to/test/perl
  make test
  make install

Now, please test you modules! If you have test failures that don't happen with Perl 5.8.8, send a simplified test case to
