NAME

Net::RDAP::Object::IPNetwork - an RDAP object representing an IP address network.

DESCRIPTION

Net::RDAP::Object::IPNetwork represents a block of IP addresses (IPv4 or IPv6) allocated by an RIR.

Net::RDAP::Object::IPNetwork inherits from Net::RDAP::Object so has access to all that module's methods.

Other methods include:

        $start = $network->start;

Returns a Net::IP object representing the starting IP address of the network.

        $end = $network->end;

Returns a Net::IP object representing the ending IP address of the network.

        $version = $network->version;

Returns a string signifying the IP protocol version of the network, either "v4" or "v6".

        $name = $network->name;

Returns a string containing the identifier assigned to the network registration by the registration holder.

        $type = $network->type;

Returns a string containing an RIR-specific classification of the network.

        $country = $network->country;

Returns a string containing the two-character country code of the network.

        $parentHandle = $network->parentHandle;

Returns a string containing an RIR-unique identifier of the parent network of this network registration

        $range = $network->range;

Returns a Net::IP object representing the range of addresses between the start and end addresses.

        $url = $network->domain;

Returns a URI object representing the RDAP URL of the "reverse" domain object corresponding to this network. For example, if the IP network is 192.168.0.0/24, then the corresponding reverse domain is 168.192.in-addr.arpa. The URL is constructed using the base URL of the RDAP service for the IP network.

You will need to fetch the object representing this domain yourself, for example:

        $ip = $rdap->ip(Net::IP->new('192.168.0.0/24'));

        # $ip is a Net::RDAP::IPNetwork

        $url = $ip->domain;

        # $url is a URI

        $domain = $rdap->fetch($url);

        # domain is a Net::RDAP::Domain for 168.192.in-addr.arpa
