If you're worried about portability, it's a bitch. I got so pissed off
with it a while ago that I wrote a module to do it at least vaguely
portably. However, once I got to the stage where it did what I needed,
I didn't have time to get it into shape to release anywhere (like CPAN).

If this sounds like what you might want, let me know & I'll dig it out
