in reply to IPv6 Supported Perl Modules

The most instructive answer I can give you is--check CPAN:

Net::SSH2 -- Net::SSH::Expect -- Net::Telnet

The most direct answer is-- YES. Nearly every Net::* module is built on top of internal OS routines which can work with IPv4 or IPv6. This is especially true of any module which accepts a domain name for host, since then under the hood it will DNS resolve to IPv4 or IPv6 depending on the hardware and router. I believe that IPv6 is still rare, but it is obviously up and coming.

    I think that's worded slightly too optimistically. There are certainly some modules which don't work with IPv6.  See also State of IPv6.

    Note to the OP: instead of trying to get an authoritative theoretical answer, why not just try?  If a certain module doesn't work with IPv6, you'll usually realize rather soon.
