Perl module to read MaxMind DB files and look up IP addresses


MaxMind::DB::Reader provides a low-level interface to the MaxMind DB file format as described at

If you are looking for an interface to MaxMind's GeoIP2 or GeoLite2 downloadable databases, you should also check out the libgeoip2-perl package, which provides a higher level OO interface to those databases.

The MaxMind-DB-Reader distribution ships with a single pure Perl implementation of the Reader API. There is a separate distribution that provides an XS implementation, which links against libmaxminddb. It is packaged as libmaxmind-db-reader-xs-perl and approximately 100 times faster than the pure Perl implementation.

This module is deprecated and will only receive fixes for major bugs and security vulnerabilities. New features and functionality will not be added.
