Net::INET6Glue - Make common modules IPv6 ready by hotpatching
use Net::INET6Glue; # include all glue use LWP; use Net::SMTP; use Net::FTP; ..
Net::INET6Glue is a collection of modules to make common modules IPv6 ready by hotpatching them.
Unfortunatly the current state of IPv6 support in perl is that no IPv6 support is in the core and that a lot of important modules (like Net::FTP, Net::SMTP, LWP,...) do not support IPv6 even if the modules for IPv6 sockets Socket6, IO::Socket::INET6 are available.
This module tries to mitigate this by hotpatching. Currently the following submodules are available:
