Net::protoent - Port of Perl 5's Net::protoent
use Net::protoent; my $p = getprotobyname('tcp') || die "no proto"; printf "proto for %s is %d, aliases are %s\n", $p.name, $p.proto, "$p.aliases()"; use Net::protoent qw(:FIELDS); getprotobyname('tcp') || die "no proto"; print "proto for $p_name is $p_proto, aliases are @p_aliases\n";
This module's exports
getprotoent functions that return
Netr::protoent objects. This object has methods that return the similarly named structure field name from the C's protoent structure from netdb.h, stripped of their leading "p_" parts, namely name, aliases, and proto.
You may also import all the structure fields directly into your namespace as regular variables using the :FIELDS import tag. Access these fields as variables named with a preceding p_ in front their method names. Thus, $proto_obj.name corresponds to $p_name if you import the fields.
getproto function is a simple front-end that forwards a numeric argument to
getprotobynumber and the rest to
