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.
