NAME

       Text::DHCPLeases - Parse DHCP leases file from ISC dhcpd.

SYNOPSIS

           use Text::DHCPLeases;

           my $leases = Text::DHCPLeases->new("/etc/dhcpd.leases");

           foreach my $obj ( $leases->get_objects ){
               print $obj->name;
               if ( $obj->binding_state eq 'active' ){
                  ...
           }
           ...

DESCRIPTION

       This module provides an object-oriented interface to ISC DHCPD leases files.  The goal is
       to objectify all declarations, as defined by the ISC dhcpd package man pages.

       This interface is useful for analyzing, reporting, converting lease files, or as a tool
       for other applications that need to import dhcpd lease data structures.

CLASS METHODS

   new - Class Constructor
         Arguments:
           Hash with the following keys:
           file  -  Leases file path
         Returns:
           Text::DHCPLeases object
         Examples:
           Text::DHCPLeases->new(file=>"/etc/dhcpd.leases");

INSTANCE METHODS

   get_objects - Get objects from leases file
         Arguments:
           Object attributes to match (optional)
         Returns:
           Array of Text::DHCPLeases::Lease objects,
           or iterator depending on context.
         Examples:
           my $it = $leases->get_objects(ip_address=>'192.168.0.1');
           while ( my $obj = $it->next ) ...

   print - Print all lease objects contents as a formatted string
         Arguments:
           None
         Returns:
           Formatted String
         Examples:
           print $leases->print;

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS

       Correct parsing of leases files depends on changes made to the format of said files by the
       authors of the ISC DHCPD package.  This module was tested against leases files generated
       by ISC DHCPD version 3.1.0.  In addition, I do not have access to leases file with all
       possible declarations and statements, so parsing could be broken in some circumstances.
       Patches are welcome.

       No bugs have been reported.
