Net::Libdnet is a Perl module that provides a simple and portable interface
to many useful low-level networking routines. Its functionality includes
network address manipulation, kernel ARP cache and route table manipulation,
firewalling, network interface manipulation, network traffic interception via
tunnel interfaces, and raw IP packet/Ethernet frame transmission.
This module is intended to complement functionality provided by libpcap. For
historical reasons, Dug Song's libdnet is called libdumbnet on Debian.
