Bug#209349: ITP: libnet-ip-perl -- Perl extension for manipulating IPv4/IPv6 addresses

Package: wnpp
Version: unavailable; reported 2003-09-07
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : libnet-ip-perl
  Version         : 1.20
  Upstream Author : Manuel Valente <manuel@ripe.net>
* URL             : http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/M/MA/MANU/Net-IP-1.20.tar.gz

  Description     : Perl extension for manipulating IPv4/IPv6 addresses

 This package contains the Net::IP module, which provides functions
 to deal with IPv4/IPv6 addresses. The module can be used as a class,
 allowing the user to instantiate IP objects, which can be single IP
 addresses, prefixes, or ranges of addresses. There is also a procedural
 way of accessing most of the functions. Most subroutines can take either
 IPv4 or IPv6 addresses transparently.

I planned to package this module because the next version of the
w3c-markup-validator (currently in beta) requires it. Actually, the
libnetaddr-ip-perl package seems to offer the same kind of functionality,
but it seemed much easier to package the tiny libnet-ip-perl rather than
forking the validator.

The package is already available on http://www.mathgen.ch/debian/unstable
if anyone is interested. If noone has any complaint about the ITP or the
package itself, I'm looking for a sponsor who can upload it -- thanks in
advance !
