       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

       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 like Socket6, IO::Socket::IP or
       IO::Socket::INET6 are available.

       This module tries to mitigate this by hotpatching.  Currently the following submodules are

           Makes IO::Socket::INET behave like IO::Socket::IP (with fallback to like
           IO::Socket::INET6), especially make it capable to create IPv6 sockets.  This makes
           LWP, Net::SMTP and others IPv6 capable.

           Hotpatches Net::FTP to support EPRT and EPSV commands which are needed to deal with
           FTP over IPv6. Also loads Net::INET6Glue::INET_is_INET6.
