in reply to Net::Ping -- other output formats?

Short answer: for now, no.

Long answer: Eventually Net::Ping will be extended in some way (either by parsing results of Net::Ping::External, or perhaps through a new module, Net::Ping::HiRes, to allow for exactly the functionality you want. Look for this functionality in a couple of months... I'm working on it. :)

    Can't you just use Time::HiRes and calculate how long it takes for the ping() method call to take? I realize you'll get a bit more overhead in the calculation than if the module did it for you, but it won't really add up to that much, will it?

    I guess hostname-to-IP lookup could be a problem so you might want to do that "by hand" before calling ping()?
