get( $ip )

    Do a query to check an IP address. Returns array of hash references, looking similar to this:

        {
            'created' => 'Sun, 17 Sep 2017 04:53:45 +0000',
            'country' => 'Turkey',
            'isoCode' => 'TR',
            'ip' => '31.210.35.146',
            'category' => [
                            14
                          ]
        }

catg( $number )

    Convert the category from integer to printable string.

filter( $category, @data )

    Return an array of those members in @data that match the given category.
    The format of @data is same as the return array from get() so see above.
    The $category can be either a number, or a printable string.

report( $ip, $comment, @category_list )

    Report an abusive IP address back to the database.
    The comment can be "" empty string or any other brief comment to explain why
    you believe this IP has done something wrong.
    One or more categories must be included, these can be numbers or printable
    string categories. e.g. :

    $db->report( '111.119.210.10', 'Very annoying IP address', 'Brute-Force', 'Port Scan' );
