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

Dear perl-coders, Sorry if this question has been answered in the past. I am writing a program which checks the httpd version of random ip's (generated by the program). How can I can I make $0 move on to next ip, if no connection got established in a 5 sec wait? (I am not using IO::Socket) Sincerely yours, Harry.
