Bug#678856: ITP: libsocket-perl -- networking constants and support functions

Package: wnpp
Owner: intrigeri <intrigeri@debian.org>
Severity: wishlist
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-perl@lists.debian.org

* Package name    : libsocket-perl
  Version         : 2.002
  Upstream Author : Larry Wall and others
* URL             : http://search.cpan.org/dist/Socket/
* License         : GPL-1+ or Artistic
  Programming Lang: Perl
  Description     : networking constants and support functions

Socket provides a variety of constants, structure manipulators and other
functions related to socket-based networking. The values and functions
provided are useful when used in conjunction with Perl core functions such as
socket(), setsockopt() and bind(). It also provides several other support
functions, mostly for dealing with conversions of network addresses between
human-readable and native binary forms, and for hostname resolver operations.

Rationale: updating libio-socket-ip-perl and libio-async-perl to their
last upstream version require an updated version of this now
dual-life module.
