NAME VM::EC2::REST::subnet - anage subnet objects and the routing among them


        use VM::EC2 ':vpc';


       These methods manage subnet objects and the routing among them. A VPC may have a single
       subnet or many, and routing rules determine whether the subnet has access to the internet
       ("public"), is entirely private, or is connected to a customer gateway device to form a
       Virtual Private Network (VPN) in which your home network's address space is extended into
       the Amazon VPC.

       All instances in a VPC are located in one subnet or another. Subnets may be public or
       private, and are organized in a star topology with a logical router in the middle.

       Although all these methods can be called from VM::EC2 objects, many are more conveniently
       called from the VM::EC2::VPC object family. This allows for steps that typically follow
       each other, such as creating a route table and associating it with a subnet, happen
       automatically. For example, this series of calls creates a VPC with a single subnet,
       creates an Internet gateway attached to the VPC, associates a new route table with the
       subnet and then creates a default route from the subnet to the Internet gateway.

        $vpc       = $ec2->create_vpc('')     or die $ec2->error_str;
        $subnet1   = $vpc->create_subnet('')  or die $vpc->error_str;
        $gateway   = $vpc->create_internet_gateway       or die $vpc->error_str;
        $routeTbl  = $subnet->create_route_table         or die $vpc->error_str;
        $routeTbl->create_route('' => $gateway) or die $vpc->error_str;



   $subnet = $ec2->create_subnet(-vpc_id=>$id,-cidr_block=>$block)
       This method creates a new subnet within the given VPC. Pass a VPC object or VPC ID, and a
       CIDR block string. If successful, the method will return a VM::EC2::VPC::Subnet object.

       Required arguments:

        -vpc_id     A VPC ID or previously-created VM::EC2::VPC object.

        -cidr_block A CIDR block string in the form "xx.xx.xx.xx/xx". The
                    CIDR address must be within the CIDR block previously
                    assigned to the VPC, and must not overlap other subnets
                    in the VPC.

       Optional arguments:

        -availability_zone  The availability zone for the instances launched
                            within this instance, either an availability zone
                            name, or a VM::EC2::AvailabilityZone object. If
                            this is not specified, then AWS chooses a zone for
                            you automatically.

   $success = $ec2->delete_subnet($subnet_id)
   $success = $ec2->delete_subnet(-subnet_id=>$id)
       This method deletes the indicated subnet. It may be called with a single argument
       consisting of the subnet ID, or a named argument form with the argument -subnet_id.

   @subnets = $ec2->describe_subnets(@subnet_ids)
   @subnets = $ec2->describe_subnets(\%filters)
   @subnets = $ec2->describe_subnets(-subnet_id=>$id, -filter   => \%filters)
       This method returns a list of VM::EC2::VPC::Subnet objects. Called with no arguments, it
       returns all Subnets (not filtered by VPC Id). Pass a list of subnet IDs or a filter
       hashref in order to restrict the search.

       Optional arguments:

        -subnet_id     Scalar or arrayref of subnet IDs.
        -filter        Hashref of filters.

       Available filters are described at

   $success = $ec2->modify_subnet_attribute(-subnet_id => $sub_id, -map_public_ip_on_launch =>
       Modifies a subnet attribute.

       Required arguments:

        -subnet_id                 The ID of the subnet to modify.

        -map_public_ip_on_launch   Modifies the public IP addressing behavior for the
                                   subnet. Specify true to indicate that instances
                                   launched into the specified subnet should be
                                   assigned a public IP address. If set to true, the
                                   instance receives a public IP address only if the
                                   instance is launched with a single, new network
                                   interface with the device index of 0.

       Returns true on success.
