NAME

POSIX::getaddrinfo

Description

The POSIX getaddrinfo() function resolves host names into IP addresses & canonical names, among other things.

Short tutorial on calling a C function demonstrates the creation of an interface to this standard library function using NativeCall.

This module extends that idea by adding perl6-friendly interfaces.

Get-Addr-Info-IPV4-STREAM()

use POSIX::getaddrinfo :Get-Addr-Info-IPV4-STREAM;

Get-Addr-Info-IPV4-STREAM-IPAddrs()

use POSIX::getaddrinfo :Get-Addr-Info-IPV4-STREAM-IPAddrs;

#   1] @0
#   └ 0 = 192.168.1.159.Str

Get-Addr-Info-IPV4-STREAM-Names()

use POSIX::getaddrinfo :Get-Addr-Info-IPV4-STREAM-Names;

Get-Addr-Info-IPV4-STREAM-Names('myserver'); # DNS serving 'mydomain.com'

#   1] @0
#   └ 0 = myserver.mydomain.com.Str
