Sys::Hostname

Sys::Hostname(3)       Perl Programmers Reference Guide       Sys::Hostname(3)



NAME
       Sys::Hostname - Try every conceivable way to get hostname

SYNOPSIS
           use Sys::Hostname;
           $host = hostname;


DESCRIPTION
       Attempts several methods of getting the system hostname and then caches
       the result.  It tries syscall(SYS_gethostname), `hostname`, `uname -n`,
       and the file /com/host.  If all that fails it croaks.

       All nulls, returns, and newlines are removed from the result.
