Name        : perl-Socket
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 2.000
Release     : 1.fc16
URL         : http://search.cpan.org/dist/Socket/
Summary     : C socket.h defines and structure manipulators
Description :
This module is just a translation of the C socket.h file.  Unlike the old
mechanism of requiring a translated socket.ph file, this uses the h2xs program
(see the Perl source distribution) and your native C compiler.  This means
that it has a far more likely chance of getting the numbers right.  This
includes all of the commonly used pound-defines like AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, etc.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

Fix a buffer overflow.
The new Socket 1.99 module for Fedora 16. This is required for IO::Socket::IP.
