MirOS Manual: Sys::Hostname(3p)


Sys::Hostname(3p)Perl Programmers Reference GuidSys::Hostname(3p)

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 the first available of the
     C library's gethostname(), `$Config{aphostname}`, uname(2),
     "syscall(SYS_gethostname)", `hostname`, `uname -n`, and the
     file /com/host.  If all that fails it "croak"s.

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