The ip6addr package

[Tags:bsd3, program]

ip6addr consists of two command-line tools: ip6addrval which filters IPv6 addresses parsed against RFC 4291. By default, ip6addrval outputs only validated inputs, i.e. IPv6 addresses, removing CIDR suffix if necessary. -e option throws out discarded inputs to stderr (which have of course to be redirected). The second command-line tool, ip6addrgen, generates random IPv6 adresses. -p option allows to provide a prefix to all IPv6 adresses to generate. -n option allows to provide the amount of IPv6 addresses to generate.
