DESCRIPTION

This class contains the country-level data associated with an IP address.

This record is returned by all the end points.

METHODS

This class provides the following methods:

$country_rec->confidence()

This returns a value from 0-100 indicating MaxMind's confidence that the country is correct.

This attribute is only available from the Insights end point and the GeoIP2 Enterprise database.

$country_rec->geoname_id()

This returns a "geoname_id" for the country.

This attribute is returned by all end points.

$country_rec->is_in_european_union()

This returns a true value if the country is a member state of the European Union and a false value otherwise.

This attribute is available from all web service end points and the GeoIP2 Country, City, and Enterprise databases.

$country_rec->iso_code()

This returns the two-character ISO 3166-1 (<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-1>) alpha code for the country.

This attribute is returned by all end points.

$country_rec->name()

This returns a name for the country. The locale chosen depends on the "locales" argument that was passed to the record's constructor. This will be passed through from the GeoIP2::WebService::Client object you used to fetch the data that populated this record.

If the record does not have a name in any of the locales you asked for, this method returns "undef".

This attribute is returned by all end points.

$country_rec->names()

This returns a hash reference where the keys are locale codes and the values are names. See GeoIP2::WebService::Client for a list of the possible locale codes.

This attribute is returned by all end points.
