8.156. Net::netent

Returns information for a network. Overrides the core getnetbyname and getnetbyaddr functions with object-oriented versions that return Net::netent objects. The objects have methods that return the fields of the same name from the netent structure in netdb.h:

Field

Description

addrtype

Net address type

aliases

Array of aliases

name

net

Network number

You can access the structure fields with the methods or by importing the fields into your namespace with the :FIELDS import tag and accessing them by prepending n_ to the field name:

$net_obj->name( )
$n_name
