  Description     : manipulates host network interfaces

Net::Interface is a module that allows access to the host network interfaces
in a manner similar to ifconfig(8). Version 1.00 is a complete re-write and

creation of new logical and physical interfaces is available where supported
by the OS and this module.

NOTE: if your OS is not supported, please feel free to contribute new
capabilities, patches, etc.... see: Net::Interface::Developer

privileges to perform the requested operation or where the operation is not
