Need code for ping perl

Need code for ping perl

Need code for ping perl

I am doing a project testing the download ot internet pages but I need code for a ping. I got some from perl.com but it is too complicated.
I was wondering if someone can give me hand with this.

Basically i need a perl program that allows me to designate a specific site, or number of sites from a seperate file and test the download time or ping time and output this data in another file.

Is this too much to ask or should it be simple enough.

Hope someone can help.

RE: Need code for ping perl

have you looked into the standard distribution module Net::Ping?  this gives you a versatile function to do what you want to do with.
