This module is intended to easily test network connectivity before functional tests begin to non-local Internet resources. It does not require any modules beyond those supplied in core Perl. If you do not specify a host/port pair, then the module defaults to using "" on port 80. You may optionally specify the port by its name, as in "http" or "ldap". If you do this, the test module will attempt to look up the port number using "getservbyname". If you do specify a host and port, they must be specified in pairs. It is a fatal error to omit one or the other. If the environment variable "NO_NETWORK_TESTING" is set, then the tests will be skipped without attempting any socket connections. If the sockets cannot connect to the specified hosts and ports, the exception is caught, reported and the tests skipped.
