[![Actions Status](https://github.com/lizmat/P5getnetbyname/workflows/test/badge.svg)](https://github.com/lizmat/P5getnetbyname/actions) 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.
