network-address alternatives and similar packages
Based on the "network" category
Do you think we are missing an alternative of network-address or a related project?
The network-address library provides data structures for IP addresses as well as sub-networks. The goal is to have a generic, fast and complete library for representing network addresses in binary or textual form. Currently it supports IPv4 and IPv6 (partially).
*Data.Network.Address> readAddress "127.0.0.1" :: IPv4 IPv4 2130706433 *Data.Network.Address> let ip = readAddress "127.0.0.1" :: IPv4 *Data.Network.Address> showAddress ip "127.0.0.1" *Data.Network.Address> let subnet = readSubnet "192.168.1.42/8" :: IPSubnet IPv4 *Data.Network.Address> subnet IPSubnet (IPv4 3232235776) (-256) *Data.Network.Address> showSubnet subnet "192.168.1.0/8" *Data.Network.Address> showAddress . base $ subnet "192.168.1.0" *Data.Network.Address> (readAddress "192.168.1.5" :: IPv4) `member` subnet True *Data.Network.Address> (readAddress "192.168.2.5" :: IPv4) `member` subnet False *Data.Network.Address> let ip = readAddress "2001:db8:0:0:0::1" :: IPv6 *Data.Network.Address> ip IPv6 2306139568115548160 1 *Data.Network.Address> showAddress ip "2001:db8::1" *Data.Network.Address> let subnet = readSubnet "2001:db8::1/56" :: IPSubnet IPv6 *Data.Network.Address> showSubnet subnet "2001:db8::/56" *Data.Network.Address> ip `member` subnet True
The network-address library is build using Cabal and Hackage. Just run:
cabal configure cabal build cabal install
The library has not reached v1.0.0 yet, and thus has an unstable API. And minor version increase (e.g. v0.1.0 -> v0.2.0) may break backwards compatibility until v1.0.0 is reached.
Documentation is available online on Hackage: http://hackage.haskell.org/package/network-address
Documentation can be generated locally using Cabal and Haddock:
The test suite can be built and run with Cabal:
cabal configure --enable-tests cabal build cabal test
A benchmarking tool using Criterion is provided by enabling the 'benchmark' flag in Cabal:
cabal configure -fbenchmark cabal build ./dist/build/benchmark/benchmark
- Support for IPv4 embedded in IPv6 as per RFC 4291 Section 2.2.
