    Description : Interface for handling DHCP packets

    This module is a release of the DHCP protocol interface to Perl 5. There
    are two parts to the interface: the packet component (Net:HCP::Packet)
    and the constants component (Net:HCP::Constants) which represents
    constants used in DHCP protocol, defined in RFC 1533, RFC 2132, RFC
    2241, RFC 2485, RFC 2563, RFC 2937, RFC 3004, RFC 3011, RFC 3046.

    Just to be a bit too picky: Please ellaborate on the description what
    does 'handling' mean - analizing them on real time? Modifying and
    reinjecting them to wreck chaos? Describe what can it do with the
    packets.

    I do not think listing the RFCs that define DHCP do anything to help
    the user understand what the package is about. But do make sure the
    upstream tarball does not include the RFCs themselves, as they are
    non-free.

    Greetings,

    You have my blessing. Not that you needed it, though! ;-)

    "With Net:HCP you can create and analyze DHCP packets which are sent
    or received with the help of IO::Socket::INET."

    I'll update the package description in svn tomorrow. Do you think this
    sentence is descriptive enought?

    The RFCs aren't included. The list is just part of description of the
    ::Constats module.
