       Sys::Hostname - Try every conceivable way to get hostname

	   use Sys::Hostname;
	   $host = hostname;

       Attempts several methods of getting the system hostname and then caches the result.  It
       tries the first available of the C library's gethostname(), `$Config{aphostname}`,
       uname(2), "syscall(SYS_gethostname)", `hostname`, `uname -n`, and the file /com/host.  If
       all that fails it "croak"s.

       All NULs, returns, and newlines are removed from the result.
