in thread Cisco SNMP CDP Poll

Put stuff like the community string into a config file and load it as needed. I use Config::Tiny but there are a host of alternatives.

I put any variable that I may need in more than one program into a central system config file. That way, when community strings, passwords, file paths, etc. change, I only have to modify one file instead of twenty.

Hope this helps,
