NAME

       Sys::HostIP - Try extra hard to get IP address related info

SYNOPSIS

           use Sys::HostIP;

           my $hostip     = Sys::HostIP->new;
           my $ips        = $hostip->ips;
           my $interfaces = $hostip->interfaces;

DESCRIPTION

       Sys::HostIP does what it can to determine the ip address of your machine. All 3 methods
       work fine on every system that I've been able to test on. (Irix, OpenBSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD,
       Solaris, Linux, OSX, Win32, Cygwin). It does this by parsing ifconfig(8) (ipconfig on
       Win32/Cygwin) output.

       It has an object oriented interface and a functional one for compatibility with older
       versions.

ATTRIBUTES

   ifconfig
           my $hostip = Sys::HostIP->new( ifconfig => '/path/to/your/ifconfig' );

       You can set the location of ifconfig with this attribute if the code doesn't know where
       your ifconfig lives.

       If you use the object oriented interface, this value is cached.

   if_info
       The interface information. This is either created on new, or you can create it yourself at
       initialize.

           # get the cached if_info
           my $if_info = $hostip->if_info;

           # create custom one at initialize
           my $hostip = Sys::HostIP->new( if_info => {...} );

METHODS

   ip
           my $ip = $hostip->ip;

       Returns a scalar containing a best guess of your host machine's IP address. On *nix (Unix,
       BSD, GNU/Linux, OSX, etc.) systems, it will return the loopback interface (127.0.0.1) if
       it can't find anything else.

   ips
           my $all_ips = $hostip->ips;
           foreach my $ip ( @{$all_ips} ) {
               print "IP: $ip\n";
           }

       Returns an array ref containing all the IP addresses of your machine.

   interfaces
           my $interfaces = $hostip->interfaces;

           foreach my $interface ( keys %{$interfaces} ) {
               my $ip = $interfaces->{$interface};
               print "$interface => $ip\n";
           }

       Returns a hash ref containing all pairs of interfaces and their corresponding IP addresses
       Sys::HostIP could find on your machine.

   EXPORT
       Nothing by default!

       To export something explicitly, use the syntax: Nothing.

           use HostIP qw/ip ips interfaces/;
           # that will get you those three subroutines, for example

       All of these subroutines will match the object oriented interface methods.

TODO

       I haven't tested the win32 code with dialup or wireless connections.

       Machines with output in some languages other than English fail.  Neverthless, the code has
       been shown to work in German, Swedish, French, Italian, and Finnish locales.
