  Description     : Perl module to read MaxMind DB files and look up IP addresses

MaxMind::DB::Reader provides a low-level interface to the MaxMind DB
file format as described at https://maxmind.github.io/MaxMind-DB/.

If you are looking for an interface to MaxMind's GeoIP2 or GeoLite2
downloadable databases, you should also check out the libgeoip2-perl
package, which provides a higher level OO interface to those databases.

The MaxMind-DB-Reader distribution ships with a single pure Perl
implementation of the Reader API. There is a separate distribution that
provides an XS implementation, which links against libmaxminddb. It is
packaged as libmaxmind-db-reader-xs-perl and approximately 100 times
faster than the pure Perl implementation.

The package will be maintained under the umbrella of the Debian Perl Group.
It is part of the dependency chain for GeoIP2
