VERSION

version 0.060000

SYNOPSIS

    use MaxMind::DB::Writer::Tree;
    use Net::Works::Network;

    my %types = (
        color => 'utf8_string',
        dogs  => [ 'array', 'utf8_string' ],
        size  => 'uint16',
    );

    my $tree = MaxMind::DB::Writer::Tree->new(
        ip_version            => 6,
        record_size           => 24,
        database_type         => 'My-IP-Data',
        languages             => ['en'],
        description           => { en => 'My database of IP data' },
        map_key_type_callback => sub { $types{ $_[0] } },
    );

    my $network
        = Net::Works::Network->new_from_string( string => '8.23.0.0/16' );

    $tree->insert_network(
        $network,
        {
            color => 'blue',
            dogs  => [ 'Fido', 'Ms. Pretty Paws' ],
            size  => 42,
        },
    );

    open my $fh, '>:bytes', '/path/to/my-ip-data.mmdb';
    $tree->write_tree($fh);

DESCRIPTION

This distribution contains the code necessary to write MaxMind DB database files. See MaxMind::DB::Writer::Tree for API docs.

WINDOWS SUPPORT

This distribution does not currently work on Windows. Reasonable patches for Windows support are very welcome. You will probably need to start by making Math::Int128 work on Windows, since we use that module's C API for dealing with 128-bit integers to represent IPv6 addresses numerically.

SUPPORT

Please report all issues with this code using the GitHub issue tracker at https://github.com/maxmind/MaxMind-DB-Writer-perl/issues.

We welcome patches as pull requests against our GitHub repository at https://github.com/maxmind/MaxMind-DB-Writer-perl.
