8.148. perl-Socket6

download PDF
Updated perl-Socket6 packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
This module supports the getaddrinfo() and getnameinfo() functions to intend to enable protocol independent programing. If the user's environment supports IPv6, IPv6 related defines such as AF_INET6 are included.

Bug Fix

When invoking a manual page for Socket6, no manual page was found. The build script has been fixed to convert POD (Plain Old Documentation) to manual pages. As a result, the "man Socket6" command correctly shows the Socket6(3) manual page for the Socket6 Perl module as expected.
Users of perl-Socket6 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
