|$auth = $reg->inet_atoauth(HOSTNAME)||
Takes a string giving the name of a host, and translates that to an
two-letter string representing the regional Internet registry that has authority
of that IP address:
Takes arguments of both the rtfm.mit.edu type and 188.8.131.52. If the host name cannot be resolved, returns undef. If the resolved IP address is not contained within the database, returns undef. For multi-homed hosts (hosts with more than one address), the first address found is returned.
|$auth = $reg->inet_ntoauth(IP_ADDRESS)||
Takes a string (an opaque string as returned by Socket::inet_aton())
and translates it into a two-letter string representing the regional Internet
registry that has authority of that IP address:
If the IP address is not contained within the database, returns undef.
|$t = $reg->db_time()||Returns the creation date of the database, measured as number of seconds since the Unix epoch (00:00:00 GMT, January 1, 1970). Suitable for feeding to gmtime and localtime.|
Only works with IPv4 addresses and ASCII hostnames.
