NAME
       Net::INET6Glue -	Make common modules IPv6 ready by hotpatching

SYNOPSIS
	use Net::INET6Glue; # include all glue
	use LWP;
	use Net::SMTP;
	use Net::FTP;
	..

DESCRIPTION
       Net::INET6Glue is a collection of modules to make common	modules	IPv6
       ready by	hotpatching them.

       Unfortunatly the	current	state of IPv6 support in perl is that no IPv6
       support is in the core and that a lot of	important modules (like
       Net::FTP, Net::SMTP, LWP,...) do	not support IPv6 even if the modules
       for IPv6	sockets	like Socket6, IO::Socket::IP or	IO::Socket::INET6 are
       available.

       This module tries to mitigate this by hotpatching.  Currently the
       following submodules are	available:

       Net::INET6Glue::INET_is_INET6
	   Makes IO::Socket::INET behave like IO::Socket::IP (with fallback to
	   like	IO::Socket::INET6), especially make it capable to create IPv6
	   sockets.  This makes	LWP, Net::SMTP and others IPv6 capable.

       Net::INET6Glue::FTP
	   Hotpatches Net::FTP to support EPRT and EPSV	commands which are
	   needed to deal with FTP over	IPv6. Also loads
	   Net::INET6Glue::INET_is_INET6.
