NAME

Net::MacMap - a module used to determine the vendor of an interface based on the MAC address.

SYNOPSIS

 my $vendor = Net::MacMap::vendor('00:D0:BA:01:49:B6');
 # $vendor is 'CISCO SYSTEMS, INC.'

DESCRIPTION

This module determines the vendor name for a particular MAC address prefix. There is only one function in this module, vendor(), which takes a scalar argument of the MAC address prefix represented as a base16 string. Only the first 24 bits of the MAC address are needed and any remaining bits will be ignored. Colons or hyphens are allowed in the MAC address.
