NAME

Net::IP::Minimal - Minimal functions from Net::IP

CONTENTS

VERSION

version 0.06

SYNOPSIS



  use Net::IP::Minimal qw[:PROC];

  my $ip = 172.16.0.216;

  ip_is_ipv4( $ip ) and print "$ip is IPv4";

  $ip = dead:beef:89ab:cdef:0123:4567:89ab:cdef;

  ip_is_ipv6( $ip ) and print "$ip is IPv6";

  print ip_get_version( $ip );



DESCRIPTION

Net::IP is very feature complete, but I found I was only using three of its functions and it uses quite a bit of memory <https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=24525>.

This module only provides the minimal number of functions that I use in my modules.

FUNCTIONS

The same as Net::IP these functions are not exported by default. You may import them explicitly or use :PROC to import them all.
ip_get_version Try to guess the IP version of an IP address.



    Params  : IP address
    Returns : 4, 6, undef(unable to determine)



$version = ip_get_version ($ip)

ip_is_ipv4 Check if an IP address is of type 4.



    Params  : IP address
    Returns : 1 (yes) or 0 (no)



ip_is_ipv4($ip) and print "$ip is IPv4";

ip_is_ipv6 Check if an IP address is of type 6.



    Params            : IP address
    Returns           : 1 (yes) or 0 (no)



ip_is_ipv6($ip) and print "$ip is IPv6";
