P5getnetbyname-0.0.6/

NAME

Raku port of Perl's getnetbyname() and associated built-ins

SYNOPSIS

use P5getnetbyname;
# exports getnetbyname, getnetbyaddr, getnetent, setnetent, endnetent

say getnetbyaddr(Scalar, 127, 2);   # something akin to loopback

my @result_byname = getnetbyname("loopback");

my @result_byaddr = getnetbyaddr(|@result_byname[4,3]);

DESCRIPTION

This module tries to mimic the behaviour of Perl's getnetbyname and associated built-ins as closely as possible in the Raku Programming Language.

It exports by default:

endnetent getnetbyname getnetbyaddr getnetent setnetent

ORIGINAL PERL 5 DOCUMENTATION

getnetbyname NAME
getnetbyaddr ADDR,ADDRTYPE
getnetent
setnetent STAYOPEN
endnetent
        These routines are the same as their counterparts in the system C
        library. In list context, the return values from the various get
        routines are as follows:

         # 0        1          2           3         4
         ( $name,   $aliases,  $addrtype,  $net      ) = getnet*

        In scalar context, you get the name, unless the function was a
        lookup by name, in which case you get the other thing, whatever it
        is. (If the entry doesn't exist you get the undefined value.)

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.
