Not so much a bug, rather feedback. Using this module will cause your scripts to die. Don't use it.

Can you provide a sample code?

Just use it as described. Using it at all will cause your script to die when a host doesn't exist or a timeout is reached, or any error is encountered. The author is aware of this, I'm just trying to make everyone else aware of it before they waste their time on it. John Show quoted text

Dying on bad domain or timeout is not a bug but is a feature. Put eval your script. On Mon Dec 15 08:49:38 2014, jk@responsecontrol.net wrote: Show quoted text

Yep, an undesired one by most users. Put an option in the module to continue, then you'd have a 99% user satisfaction rate rather than < 1%. Poorly designed architecturally :) John Show quoted text
