Pinging the visitor?
I was wondering if it was possible to ping the visitor, to find out how fast they are connecting with the server and depending on that it will send them to the appropriate page (fast connection users or slow connection users). I know in the command prompt on windows you can type ping 126.96.36.199 and it will ping that ip address. So i was wondering if there was any ping command for perl or if there was a module that can do this. BTW am i posting this in the right area or is this to hard(or easy, if that is the case i put it in the right spot)?
Thanks for the help :)
