module for using IPv4 and IPv6 sockets in a protocol-independent way
DescriptionIO::Socket::IP provides a protocol-independent way to use IPv4 and IPv6 sockets. It allows new connections to be made by specifying the hostname and service name or port number. It allows for connections to be accepted by sockets listening on local ports, by service name or port number. It uses Socket::GetAddrInfo's getaddrinfo function to convert hostname/service name pairs into sets of possible addresses to connect to. This allows it to work for IPv6 where the system supports it, while still falling back to IPv4-only on systems which don't. It provides an API which, for most typical cases, should be a drop-in replacement for IO::Socket::INET; most constructor arguments and methods are provided in a compatible way.
