NAME

       Net::Interface::NetSymbols - AF_ PF_ IFxxx type symbols

SYNOPSIS

       This module is built for this specific architecture during the make process using
       inst/netsymbols.pl. Do not edit this module, edit inst/netsymbols.pl instead.

       This module contains symbols arrays only for use by Net::Interface, in all other respects
       it is NOT functional. It contains documentation and data arrays for this specific
       architecture.

       NOTE:     WARNING !!

            usage is Net::Interface

       NOT  Net::Interface::NetSymbols

       use Net::Interface qw(

DESCRIPTION

       All of the AF_XXX and PF_XXX symbols available in local "sys/socket.h" plus usual aliases
       for AF_LOCAL i.e. (AF_FILE AF_UNIX PF_LOCAL PF_FILE PF_UNIX)

       All of the IFxxxx and IN6_IF symbols in "net/if.h, netinet/in.h, netinet/in_var.h" and
       their includes.

       Symbols may be accessed for their numeric value or their string name.

         i.e.  if ($family == AF_INET)
                   do something...

           or  print AF_INET
           will product the string "inet"

       The same holds true for:

               printf("family is %s",AF_INET);
           or  sprint("family is %s",AF_INET);

       To print the numeric value of the SYMBOL do:

               print (0 + SYMBOL), "\n";

       On systems supporting IPV6, these additional symbols are available which may be applied to
       the address type to determine the address attributes.

       ·   Net::Interface::NetSymbols::NI_ENDVAL();

           Reports the highest symbol value +1 of :all symbols above. Used for testing.

       ·   Net::Interface::NetSymbols::NI_UNIQUE();

           Returns a hash pointer to the AF_ or PF_ symbol values mapped to their character
           strings as defined for this architecture.

             i.e.
                   0       => 'PF_UNSPEC',
                   1       => 'PF_LOCAL',
