IP::Country::DB_File - IP to country translation based on DB_File
use IP::Country::DB_File; my $ipcc = IP::Country::DB_File->new(); $ipcc->inet_atocc('126.96.36.199'); $ipcc->inet_atocc('host.example.com');
IP::Country::DB_File is a light-weight module for fast IP address to country translation based on DB_File. The country code database is stored in a Berkeley DB file. You have to build the database using IP::Country::DB_File::Builder before you can lookup country codes.
my $ipcc = IP::Country::DB_File->new([ $db_file ]);
Creates a new object and opens the database file $db_file. $db_file defaults to ipcc.db.
Looks up the country code of host $string. $string can either be an IP address in dotted quad notation or a hostname.
If successful, returns the country code. In most cases it is an ISO-3166-1 alpha-2 country code, but there are also codes like 'EU' for Europe. See the documentation of IP::Country for more details.
Returns '**' for private IP addresses.
Returns undef if there's no country code listed for the IP address.
Like inet_atocc but works with a packed IP address.
Returns the mtime of the DB file.
