in reply to How to require IPv6 support

You'll see fails for Win32 with Perl certainly less than 5.14. I know for a fact the Strawberry < 5.14 versions of Socket do not support IPv6 as I've tried with them on Windows 7 which certainly does support IPv6 and will compile IPv6 C code.

The work around I've used is:

use if $] < 5.014, "Socket" => qw(inet_ntoa unpack_sockaddr_in IPPROT +O_TCP AF_INET AF_UNSPEC); use if $] < 5.014, "Socket6"; use if $] < 5.014, "Socket::GetAddrInfo" => qw(getaddrinfo getnameinf +o); use if $] >= 5.014, "Socket" => qw(:addrinfo inet_ntoa inet_ntop unpac +k_sockaddr_in unpack_sockaddr_in6 IPPROTO_TCP AF_INET AF_UNSPEC);
UPDATE: See UPDATE section in Re^2: ipv6 support on windows.

[perldigious]: Hmm, thanks Lotus1... perldigious scribbles note to buy lots of opossums as "pets" in the future to hang around outside his property. :-P
[1nickt]: You must twist and pull! If you burn, use tea tree oil etc, the tick barfs (inside your blood vessel) and you get all the loevely bacteria in his gut transferred to yours.
[1nickt]: tweesers work just fine
[hippo]: Hope everyone else is enjoying their lunch too.
[1nickt]: However, note that it takes between 2 and 4 hours for a tick to be able to start transmitting bacteria. So even if it has burrowed in and started eating, if you get it soon you should be OK.
[perldigious]: 1nickt: No more red meat! It would be more humane to just kill you, wouldn't it! :-)
[1nickt]: Just don't make it barf.
[1nickt]: perldigious that's exactly what my stepson says.
[1nickt]: the tick that can make you a vegetarian
[perldigious]: Your Mother: Yeah, I have a tool for ticks that I use (mostly on my dogs thankfully), but it's just a cheapo one I got from my vets office... it works pretty good though.
