The Net::Route ModuleEvery 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 ClassNet::Route objects represent single entries from a Net::Route::Table.
INTERFACEThis 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).
INSTALLING DEPENDENCIES ON SUN SOLARIS SYSTEMS WITH GCCThe 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 ROADMAPPlease refer to the Changes file for a detailed history.
0.01 - First Public ReleaseNet::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 ReleasesThese 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 FreezeWhen appropriate (according to the user reports), we will freeze the interface and release version 1.0.
BUGSPlease 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.
