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()?

[sierpinski]: I've never seen $#$var before.
[LanX]: $list cops be an array ref
[LanX]: could
[LanX]: $#array gives the length
[LanX]: no sorry ...
[sierpinski]: so that would just be deferencing it...
[LanX]: the last index!
[LanX]: yes
[sierpinski]: yeah I guess $list is a reference.. yeah
[sierpinski]: why is it the last index and not the first? because the length of the array becomes the index?
