Bug#239311: ITP: iptables-ipv4-perl -- IPTables::IPv4 - Perl module for manipulating iptables rules

Package: wnpp

* Package name    : iptables-ipv4-perl
  Version         : 0.98
  Upstream Author : Derrik Pates <dpates@dsdk12.net>

  Description     : IPTables::IPv4 - Perl module for manipulating iptables rules

 This package provides a nice interface to the IP Tables control API
 fairly closely parallels the C API exported in libiptc for
 firewalling and forwarding rules for IPv4 packets. Also, a tied
 data structure has been built, allowing the tables, chains, rules
 and fields
 to be manipulated in a more natural fashion.
 Wrappers have been implemented for all methods except one
 (iptc_check_packet()), and according to Harald Welte and Rusty
 Russell, the
 unimplemented call will likely remain so. Protocol-specific
 match modules
 have been implemented for TCP, UDP and ICMP. Several target
 and non-protocol
 match modules have been implemented.
