NAME

Net::INET6Glue::INET_is_INET6 - make IO::Socket::INET behave like IO::Socket::INET6

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



 use Net::INET6Glue::INET_is_INET6;
 use LWP::Simple;
 print get( http://[::1]:80 );
 print get( http://ipv6.google.com );



DESCRIPTION

Many modules directly create IO::Socket::INET sockets or have it as a superclass. Because IO::Socket::INET has no support for IPv6 these modules don’t have it either.

This module tries to make IO::Socket::INET behave like IO::Socket::INET6 by copying the symbol table from IO::Socket::INET6 into IO::Socket::INET. The original symbol table from IO::Socket::INET is still available in IO::Socket::INET4.

This strategy works for Net::SMTP, LWP and probably a lot of other modules too, which don’t try to depend too much on the innards of IO::Socket::INET or on the text representation of IP addresses (IPv6 addresses look different than IPv4 addresses).
