NAME

       Net::Route - Portable interface to the routing table

SYNOPSIS

           use Net::Route::Table;
           my $table_ref = Net::Route::Table->from_system();
           my $route_ref = $table_ref->default_route();
           print "Default gateway: ", $route_ref->gateway(), "\n";

VERSION

       Version 0.02, $Revision: 372 $

DESCRIPTION

   The Net::Route Module
       Every OS provides its custom interface to the routing table: Linux' "route" utility is
       different from BSD's "route show", from Windows' "route print", etc. Parsing all these
       different output styles in an (otherwise portable) script can quickly become inconvenient.

       Net::Route abstracts the system specifics and provides a single, portable interface.

   The Net::Route Class
       Net::Route objects represent single entries from a Net::Route::Table.

INTERFACE

       This documents Net::Route as a class. To know how to use the module, refer to the synopsis
       or Net::Route::Table (the entry point from a user perspective).

   Object Methods
       destination()

       gateway()

       metric()

       interface()

       is_active()

       is_dynamic()

INSTALLING DEPENDENCIES ON SUN SOLARIS SYSTEMS WITH GCC

       The perl interpreter shipped with Solaris was compiled with Sun's proprietary C compiler,
       and therefore attempts to compile XS modules with the same tool and options. However,
       Solaris comes by default with the GNU C Compiler ("gcc") only, which has its own set of
       incompatible command-line arguments. Mixing these two to compile "XS" Perl modules doesn't
       work.

       Therefore, when you need to install CPAN modules (such as Net::Route's dependencies) which
       make use of "XS" (C code) on a system without the Sun C Compiler, you have to use the
       wrapper script provided by Sun which will invoke "gcc" correctly (replace "Module" as
       needed):

         /usr/perl5/bin/perlgcc -MCPAN -e 'install Module'.

STATUS AND ROADMAP

       Please refer to the Changes file for a detailed history.

   0.01 - First Public Release
       Net::Route meets our goals for a first public release:

       ·   It can list all routes

       ·   It can get the default route

       ·   It can provide the most common characteristics of routes

       ·   It is portable on Linux, Solaris and Windows

       Net::Route is used in other Straton IT (<http://en.straton-it.fr/>) software, such as
       Cancerbero 0.7 (<http://en.straton-it.fr/open-source/cancerbero-07>) and Confdump/Sys
       (<http://confdump.sourceforge.net/>).

   0.xx - Community Releases
       These releases will include features and bugfixes suggested, reported and/or contributed
       by the community. For example:

       ·   Differentiating between "Net::Route"-as-a-class and "Net::Route"-as-a-module

       ·   Support for more operating systems

       ·   Getting rid of CPAN dependencies that are troublesome to install on some platforms.

       ·   Your idea (<http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/Bugs.html?Dist=Net-Route>) here...

       The API might change somewhat, if necessary.

   1.0 - API Freeze
       When appropriate (according to the user reports), we will freeze the interface and release
       version 1.0.

BUGS

       Please report any bugs or feature requests to "bug-net-route at rt.cpan.org", or through
       the web interface at <http://rt.cpan.org/NoAuth/ReportBug.html?Queue=Net-Route>. I will be
       notified, and then you'll automatically be notified of progress on your bug as I make
       changes.
