Net::Interface is a module that allows access to the host network interfaces
in a manner similar to ifconfig(8). Version 1.00 is a complete re-write and
includes support for IPV6 as well as the traditional IPV4.
Both read and write access to network device attributes including the
creation of new logical and physical interfaces is available where supported
by the OS and this module.
NOTE: Many of the operations of Net::Interface, particularly those that set
interface values require privileged access to OS resources. Wherever possible,
Net::Interface will simply fail softly when there are not adequateprivileges
to perform the requested operation or where the operation is not supported.
