Kevin_Raymer has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hello monks!

Well it seems as if I have gained over 200 exp points so I think people are starting to come around to my way of computer hacking.

I am trying to use snmp for those who don't know:

The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) forms part of the internet protocol suite as defined by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). SNMP is used in network management systems to monitor network-attached devices for conditions that warrant administrative attention. It consists of a set of standards for network management, including an Application Layer protocol, a database schema, and a set of data objects. SNMP exposes management data in the form of variables on the managed systems, which describe the system configuration. These variables can then be queried (and sometimes set) by managing applications.

I guess there are no modules to help with my CODE because I did a find on cpan and got this

Warning: Cannot install find, don't know what it is. Try the command i /find/ to find objects with matching identifiers. Warning: Cannot install snmp, don't know what it is. Try the command i /snmp/

So it looks like I will have to hack my own module. Has anyone out there hacked a module before?

***In case you don't know a module is a plug in that helps your code run faster.
