NetPacket::ICMP - Assemble and disassemble ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol) packets.
use NetPacket::ICMP; $icmp_obj = NetPacket::ICMP->decode($raw_pkt); $icmp_pkt = NetPacket::ICMP->encode(); $icmp_data = NetPacket::ICMP::strip($raw_pkt);
NetPacket::ICMP provides a set of routines for assembling and disassembling packets using ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol).
Decode the raw packet data given and return an object containing instance data. This method will quite happily decode garbage input. It is the responsibility of the programmer to ensure valid packet data is passed to this method.
Return an ICMP packet encoded with the instance data specified.
Return the encapsulated data (or payload) contained in the ICMP packet.
The instance data for the
NetPacket::ICMP object consists of the following fields.
The ICMP message type of this packet.
The ICMP message code of this packet.
The checksum for this packet.
The encapsulated data (payload) for this packet.
