Bug#697049: ITP: libsocket-msghdr-perl -- sendmsg, recvmsg and ancillary data operations

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: "Andrew Lee (李健秋)" <ajqlee@debian.org>

* Package name    : libsocket-msghdr-perl
  Version         : 0.04

  Description     : sendmsg, recvmsg and ancillary data operations

  Socket::MsgHdr provides advanced socket messaging operations via sendmsg and
  recvmsg. Like their C counterparts, these functions accept few parameters,
  instead stuffing a lot of information into a complex structure.
  This structure describes the message sent or received (buf), the peer on the
  other end of the socket (name), and ancillary or so-called control
  information (cmsghdr). This ancillary data may be used for file descriptor
  passing, IPv6 operations, and a host of implemenation-specific extensions.
