Net::netent - Port of Perl 5's Net::netent
use Net::netent; my $n = getnetbyname("loopback") or die "bad net"; printf "%s is %08X\n", $n.name, $n.net; use Net::netent qw(:FIELDS); getnetbyname("loopback") or die "bad net"; printf "%s is %08X\n", $n_name, $n_net;
This module's exports
getnetent functions that return
Netr::netent objects. This object has methods that return the similarly named structure field name from the C's netent structure from netdb.h, stripped of their leading "n_" parts, namely name, aliases, addrtype and net.
You may also import all the structure fields directly into your namespace as regular variables using the :FIELDS import tag. Access these fields as variables named with a preceding n_ in front their method names. Thus, $net_obj.name corresponds to $n_name if you import the fields.
getnet function is a simple front-end that forwards a numeric argument to
getnetbyaddr and the rest to
