in reply to System command from crontab

I dare bet that hping is on your path when the script is run from CLI, but isn't when run by cron, try something like this in your crontab
/1 * * * * . $HOME/.profile; /root/scripts/perf/test.pl > /tmp/test.tx +t 2>&1
On reflection, methinx there's also a typo - /1 isn't, AFAIK, valid crontab syntax.

[haukex]: Corion: Yes exactly, in the author tests I don't worry about portability as much, I also don't list the author tests' dependencies in Makefile.PL
[haukex]: I figure someone who wants to contribute will know how to install the missing modules ;-) Not the nicest way to go but I don't think many people are using my modules yet
[ambrus]: Corion: some of these stupid syntax highlighters assume that too. just look at the table in http://perldoc. perl.org/ functions/pack. html for example.
[haukex]: ..."yet" ;-) I haven't had to deal with Dist::Zilla yet but I've heard about how it's a big setup
[ambrus]: I really don't like automagic stuff. I'm happy when computers do exactly what I tell them, even if that means they sometimes do the wrong thing.
[ambrus]: And I don't much like syntax highlighters. If you need a syntax highlighter to understand your code, then your code is written unclear.
