( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I have written a script to do bulk hostname lookups. Give my script a list in a text file and it will do the lookup and give you a text based output with the information it found. I want to know if threading this is:
A) Possible, I am looking at several thousand lookups and would like to streamline and speed up this code as much as possible.
B) Is the best way to speed up this script. Right now it takes 3-6 hours to do 6000 lookups. I would like to trim this time down to as little as possible.

Thanks

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
