Getting a network name in Perl under OpenVMS 6.2

In Perl under Unix I can have something like $name=`hostname` which will put the name of the local host into $name. Is there a more generic form of this that will also work under OpenVMS 6.2 or something that is specific to OpenVMS? I should add that I would prefer a full domain name to be returned rather than just the VMS node name.

Thanks for help in advance.

#!/usr/bin/perl

@addr = gethostent();

($a,$b,$c,$d) = unpack('C4',$_);

print "addr[0]:$a.$b.$c.$d\n";

Should dump out some info...  this means that, addr[0] should
be the name of the machine, and addr[4] should be the IP
address of it..  

BTW, you should have all the std C TCP stuff there...
