ipv6calc provides a small utility to manipulate IPv6 addresses.
ipv6calc can be used by scripts to convert IPv6 addresses from one format to another.
ipv6calc is a small but powerful utility written in the C programming language to manipulate (not only) IPv6 addresses. ipv6calc allows the users to convert a given IPv6 address to the compressed format or to the format used by /proc/net/if_inet6. ipv6calc is also the replacement of the old ip6_int Perl program.
This utility is also used to extend features on network-functions-ipv6 library, used by initscripts-ipv6.
Hint: take also a look at the Advanced Network Management Laboratory / IPv6 Address Oracle if you want to learn more about IPv6 addresses.
