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 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.
