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:// .
  ./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
