NAME ^

Net::IPTrie - Perl module for building IPv4 and IPv6 address space hierarchies

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Net::IPTrie;
    my $tr = Net::IPTrie->new(version=>4);  # IPv4
    my $n  = $tr->add(address=>'10.0.0.0', prefix=>8);
    my $a  = $tr->add(address=>'10.0.0.1', data=>$data) # prefix defaults to 32
    $a->parent->address eq $n->address and print "$a is within $n";

    # Addresses can be provided in integer (decimal) format
    # 10.0.0.7 == 167772167
    my $b = $tr->add(iaddress=>'167772167', data=>'blah');
    if ( my $c = $tr->find(address=>"10.0.0.7" ) {
        print $c->data;  # should print "blah"
    }

   # If the IP does not exist:
   my $d = $tr->find(address=>"10.0.0.8")
   print $d->address;  # should print "10.0.0.0", which is the closest parent block

DESCRIPTION ^

 This module uses a radix tree (or trie) to quickly build the hierarchy of a given address space
 (both IPv4 and IPv6).  This allows the user to perform fast subnet or routing lookups.
 It is implemented exclusively in Perl.

CLASS METHODS ^

new - Class Constructor

  Arguments: 
    Hash with the following keys:
    version - IP version (4|6)
  Returns:   
    New Net::IPTrie object
  Examples:    
    my $tr = Net::IPTrie->new(version=>4);

INSTANCE METHODS ^

version - Set or get IP version (4 or 6)

  Arguments: 
    IP version (4 or 6) - optional
  Returns:   
    version (4 or 6)
  Examples:  
    print $tr->version;

size - Set or get IP size (32 or 128)

  Arguments:   
    Size (32 or 128) - optional
  Returns:     
    Address size in bits (32 or 128)
  Examples:    
    print $tr->size;   

find - Find an IP object in the trie

    If the given IP does not exist, there are two options:
    a) If the "deep" flag is off, the closest covering IP block is returned. This is
       the default behavior.
    b) If the "deep" flag is on, the node where the searched IP should be inserted is returned.  
       This is basically only useful for the "add" method.

  Arguments: 
    Hash with following keys:
      address  - String (i.e. "10.0.0.1") address
      iaddress - Integer (i.e. "167772161") address, IPv4 or IPv6.
      prefix   - Prefix Length (optional  - defaults to host mask)
      deep     - Flag (optional). If not found, return the node where object should be inserted.
  Returns:   
    Net::IPTrie::Node object.  
  Examples:    
    my $n = $tr->find("10.0.0.1", 32);

add - Add an IP to the trie

  Arguments: 
    Hash with following keys:
      address  - String address, IPv4 or IPv6 (i.e. "10.0.0.1")  
      iaddress - Integer address, IPv4 or IPv6 (i.e. "167772161") 
      prefix   - Prefix Length (optional - defaults to host mask)
      data     - Data (optional)
  Returns:   
     New Net::IPTrie::Node object
  Examples:    
    my $n = $tr->add(address=>"10.0.0.1", prefix=>32, data=>\$data);

traverse - Traverse every node in the tree

  Arguments: 
    root - node object (optional - defaults to tree root)
    code - coderef (will be passed the Net::IPTrie::Node object to act upon)
    mode - (depth_first only, for now)
  Returns:   
    Number of actual IP nodes visited
  Examples:    
    # Store all IP nodes in an array, ordered.
    my $list = ();
    my $code = sub { push @$list, shift @_ };
    my $count = $tr->traverse(code=>$code);
