Well depending on your OS there are a couple of ways you can do this. If it is a *nix machine you can do smoething like.
open (READ, "ifconfig fxp0 |") or die "$!"; while (<READ>) { chomp; if (/ether/) { s/^\s+//; my $mac = (split)[1]; } } close READ;
I haven't tested this code, but I am pretty sure that would do it. And if it is an NT machine you would just do something similar with ipconfig instead. Note you should replace fxp0 with the name of your network device. Update: I just tested the code and it worked.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
