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

Dear Monks, I need to know a particular computer system is currently ON or OFF position in network. I can get the system name through "node name" command. For example, "sys35". My Perl version is 5.8.8 and Network OS is Samba Server. Please suggest what option in perl? Thanks Deva
