How to get Mac Address

P: 25
Hello All,

I am a total perl begin who is trying to put together a simple program to collect information on a local machine. I have managed to gather everything i want except retrieve the Mac address... and its driving me insane. All i need is the simplest method of getting the mac address, I have looked at a few perl modules and cant get anything to work or the module cant be found. Is anyone able to help me?

Any help is very much appreciated.

If the module cannot be found, then you have not installed it. The modules listed in CPAN are not all installed by default. In fact only a small subset of them are. You need to install them using the CPAN interface that comes with perl. You should really read up on how to install perl modules.

Why not post your code here and any error(s) you received when running it. That way we aren't running blind and guessing badly at what you are trying to do.
