= GeoIP

http://geoip.rubyforge.org/

== DESCRIPTION:

GeoIP searches a GeoIP database for a given host or IP address, and
returns information about the country where the IP address is allocated,
and the city, ISP and other information, if you have that database version.

== FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

This release applies a Mutex around file I/O operations, which should
prevent GeoIP blowing up under multi-threaded usage.

== SYNOPSIS:

require 'geoip'
GeoIP.new('GeoIP.dat').country("www.netscape.sk")
=> ["www.netscape.sk", "217.67.16.35", 196, "SK", "SVK", "Slovakia", "EU"]

== REQUIREMENTS:

You need at least the free GeoIP.dat, for which the last known download
location is <http://www.maxmind.com/download/geoip/database/GeoIP.dat.gz>,
or the city database from <http://www.maxmind.com/app/geolitecity>.

This API requires the file to be decompressed for searching. Other versions
of this database are available for purchase which contain more detailed
information, but this information is not returned by this implementation.
See www.maxmind.com for more information.

== INSTALL:

sudo gem install geoip
