NAME

NetSNMP::OID - Perl extension for manipulating OIDs  

SYNOPSIS

  use NetSNMP::OID;

  my $oid = new NetSNMP::OID('sysContact.0');

  if ($oid < new NetSNMP::OID('ifTable')) {
      do_something();
  }

  my @numarray = $oid->to_array();

  # appending oids
  $oid = new NetSNMP::OID('.1.3');
  $oid += ".6.1";
  # -> .1.3.6.1

  # appending index strings

  $oid2 = $oid + "\"wes\"";
  # -> .1.3.6.1.3.119.101.115

  $oid3 = $oid + "\'wes\'";
  # -> .1.3.6.1.119.101.115

  $len = $oid3->length();
  # -> 7

  # retrieving indexes from an oid:
  $arrayref = $tableoid->get_indexes()

 

DESCRIPTION

The NetSNMP::OID module is a simple wrapper around a C-based net-snmp oid (which is an array of unsigned integers). The OID is internally stored as a C array of integers for speed purposes when doing comparisons, etc.

The standard logical expression operators (<, >, ==, ...) are overloaded such that lexographical comparisons may be done with them.

The + operator is overloaded to allow you to append stuff on to the end of a OID, like index segments of a table, for example.
