NAME
       Mail::SPF::Util - Mail::SPF utility class

SYNOPSIS
           use Mail::SPF::Util;

           $hostname = Mail::SPF::Util->hostname;

           $ipv6_address_v4mapped =
               Mail::SPF::Util->ipv4_address_to_ipv6($ipv4_address);

           $ipv4_address =
               Mail::SPF::Util->ipv6_address_to_ipv4($ipv6_address_v4mapped);

           $is_v4mapped =
               Mail::SPF::Util->ipv6_address_is_ipv4_mapped($ipv6_address);

           $ip_address_string  = Mail::SPF::Util->ip_address_to_string($ip_address);
           $reverse_name       = Mail::SPF::Util->ip_address_reverse($ip_address);

           $validated_domain = Mail::SPF::Util->valid_domain_for_ip_address(
               $spf_server, $request,
               $ip_address, $domain,
               $find_best_match,       # defaults to false
               $accept_any_domain      # defaults to false
           );

DESCRIPTION
       Mail::SPF::Util is Mail::SPF's utility class.

       Class methods

       The following class methods are provided:

       hostname: returns string
           Returns the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the local host.

       ipv4_address_to_ipv6($ipv4_address): returns NetAddr::IP; throws
       Mail::SPF::EInvalidOptionValue
           Converts the specified NetAddr::IP IPv4 address into an IPv4-mapped
           IPv6 address.  Throws a Mail::SPF::EInvalidOptionValue exception if
           the specified IP address is not an IPv4 address.

       ipv6_address_to_ipv4($ipv6_address): returns NetAddr::IP; throws
       Mail::SPF::EInvalidOptionValue
           Converts the specified NetAddr::IP IPv4-mapped IPv6 address into a
           proper IPv4 address.  Throws a Mail::SPF::EInvalidOptionValue
           exception if the specified IP address is not an IPv4-mapped IPv6
           address.

       ipv6_address_is_ipv4_mapped($ipv6_address): returns boolean
           Returns true if the specified NetAddr::IP IPv6 address is an
           IPv4-mapped address, false otherwise.

       ip_address_to_string($ip_address): returns string; throws
       Mail::SPF::EInvalidOptionValue
           Returns the given NetAddr::IP IPv4 or IPv6 address compactly for-
           matted as a string.  For IPv4 addresses, this is equivalent to
           calling  NetAddr::IP's "addr"  method.  For IPv6 addresses, this is
           equivalent to calling  NetAddr::IP's "short"  method.  Throws a
           Mail::SPF::EInvalidOptionValue exception if the specified object is
           not a NetAddr::IP IPv4 or IPv6 address object.

       ip_address_reverse($ip_address): returns string; throws Mail::SPF::EIn-
       validOptionValue
           Returns the "in-addr.arpa."/"ip6.arpa." reverse notation of the
           given NetAddr::IP IPv4 or IPv6 address.  Throws a Mail::SPF::EIn-
           validOptionValue exception if the specified object is not a
           NetAddr::IP IPv4 or IPv6 address object.

       valid_domain_for_ip_address($server, $request, $ip_address, $domain,
       $find_best_match = false, $accept_any_domain = false): returns string
       or undef
           Finds a valid domain name for the given NetAddr::IP IP address that
           matches the given domain or a sub-domain thereof.  A domain name is
           valid for the given IP address if the IP address reverse-maps to
           that domain name in DNS, and the domain name in turn forward-maps
           to the IP address.  Uses the given Mail::SPF::Server and
           Mail::SPF::Request objects to perform DNS look-ups.  Returns the
           validated domain name.

           If $find_best_match is true, the one domain name is selected that
           best matches the given domain name, preferring direct matches over
           sub-domain matches.  Defaults to false.

           If $accept_any_domain is true, any domain names are considered
           acceptable, even if they differ completely from the given domain
           name (which is then effectively unused unless a best match is
           requested).  Defaults to false.
