[![Actions Status](https://github.com/lizmat/Net-netent/workflows/test/badge.svg)](https://github.com/lizmat/Net-netent/actions) NAME ==== Raku port of Perl's Net::netent module SYNOPSIS ======== 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; DESCRIPTION =========== This module tries to mimic the behaviour of Perl's `Net::netent` module as closely as possible in the Raku Programming Language. This module's exports `getnetbyname`, `getnetbyaddrd`, and `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. The `getnet` function is a simple front-end that forwards a numeric argument to `getnetbyaddr` and the rest to `getnetbyname`. PORTING CAVEATS =============== This module depends on the availability of POSIX semantics. This is generally not available on Windows, so this module will probably not work on Windows.
