  Description     : Net::IRR - Perl interface to the Internet Route Registry Daemon

This module provides an object oriented perl interface to the Internet Route Registry. The interface uses the RIPE/RPSL Tool Query Language as defined in Appendix B of the IRRd User Guide. The guide can be found at http://www.irrd.net/, however an understanding of the query language is not required to use this module.

Net::IRR supports IRRd's multiple-command mode. Multiple-command mode is good for intensive queries since only one TCP connection needs to be made for multiple queries. The interface also allows for additional queries that aren't supported by standard UNIX whois utitilies.

Hopefully this module will stimulate development of new Route Registry tools written in Perl. An example of Route Registry tools can be found by googling for RAToolset which is now known as the IRRToolset. The RAToolset was originally developed by ISI, http://www.isi.edu/, and is now maintained by RIPE, http://www.ripe.net/.
