       VM::EC2::ElasticAddress - Object describing an Amazon EC2 Elastic Address


         use VM::EC2;

         $ec2     = VM::EC2->new(...);
         $addr    = $ec2->allocate_address;

         $ip      = $addr->publicIp;
         $domain  = $addr->domain;
         $allId   = $addr->allocationId;


       This object represents an Amazon EC2 elastic address and is returned by by


       These object methods are supported:

        publicIp      -- Public IP of the address
        domain        -- Type of address, either "standard" or "vpc"
        allocationId  -- For VPC addresses only, an allocation ID
        instanceId    -- If the address is associated with an instance, the
                         ID of that instance.
        associationId -- If the address is a VPC elastic IP, and associated
                         with an instance, then the ID of the association.

       In addition, the following convenience methods are provided:

   $result = $addr->associate($instance_id)
       Associate this address with the given instance ID or VM::EC2::Instance object. If
       successful, the result code will be true for an ordinary EC2 Elastic IP,or equal to the
       associationId for a VPC Elastic IP address.

   $result = $addr->disassociate()
       Disassociate this address with any instance it is already associated with. If successful,
       this method will return true.

       This is an internal function called after associate() and disassociate(), and is used to
       refresh the address object's contents.


       When used in a string context, this object will interpolate the publicIp.
