in thread Net::Ping broken on Solaris?

It looks like device binding is only available on Linux. The documentation for Net::Ping has been updated as such and should be in the next release of Net::Ping and Perl.

Test your modules with bleadperl!

  rsync -avz rsync://public.activestate.com/perl-current/ .
  ./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

perlbug at perl.org

    I almost completely forgot about the problem and, after a year, I couldn't imagine anyone noticing it anymore! Thanks for digging down in it, Steve_p!

    Ciao!

    In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.
