MaxMind::DB::Reader::XS - Fast XS implementation of MaxMind DB reader
my $reader = MaxMind::DB::Reader->new( file => 'path/to/database.mmdb' ); my $record = $reader->record_for_address('184.108.40.206');
Simply installing this module causes MaxMind::DB::Reader to use the XS implementation, which is much faster than the Perl implementation.
The XS implementation links against the libmaxminddb library.
See MaxMind::DB::Reader for API details.
This module uses semantic versioning as described by http://semver.org/. Version numbers can be read as X.YYYZZZ, where X is the major number, YYY is the minor number, and ZZZ is the patch number.
If you're running into install errors under Mac OS X, you may need to force a
build of the 64 bit binary. For example, if you're installing via
ARCHFLAGS="-arch x86_64" cpanm MaxMind::DB::Reader::XS
The version of libmaxminddb that is available by default with Ubuntu may be too old for this level of MaxMind::DB::Reader::XS. However, we do maintain a Launchpad PPA for all supported levels of Ubuntu.
Please visit the PPA page for more information, or, to configure your system, run as root:
# apt-add-repository ppa:maxmind/ppa # apt-get update
The PPA is now configured, and you may install (or upgrade) the libmaxminddb library via the usual apt commands.
