NAME
       Net::BitTorrent::Util - BitTorrent Related Utility Functions

Importing From Net::BitTorrent::Util
       By default, nothing is exported.

       You may import any of the following or use one or more of these tags:

       ":all"
	 Everything is imported	into your namespace.

       ":bencode"
	 You get the two Bencode-related functions: bencode and	bdecode.  For
	 more on Bencoding, see	the BitTorrent Protocol	documentation.

       ":compact"
	 Imports the tracker response-related functions	compact	and uncompact.

Functions
       "bencode	( ARGS )"
	   Expects a single value (basic scalar, array reference, or hash
	   reference) and returns a single string.

	   Bencoding is	the BitTorrent protocol's basic	serialization and data
	   organization	format.	 The specification supports integers, lists
	   (arrays), dictionaries (hashes), and	byte strings.

       "bdecode	( STRING )"
	   Expects a bencoded string.  The return value	depends	on the type of
	   data	contained in the string.

       "compact	( LIST )"
	   Compacts a list of IPv4:port	strings	into a single string.

	   A compact peer is 6 bytes; the first	four bytes are the host	(in
	   network byte	order),	the last two bytes are the port	(again,	in
	   network byte	order).

       "uncompact ( STRING )"
	   Inflates a compacted	string of peers	and returns a list of
	   IPv4:port strings.
