Hello, When running the function is_ipv6 I ran into issues with it validating an IPv6 address which ends with an ipv4 address chunk. The IP ::ffff: is properly validated, but it's non shortened format 0:0:0:0:0:ffff: is considered to be invalid. I did some investigation and it's because the ipv4 chunk takes 4 bytes and therefore the total number of chunks are 7 (not 8). I have attached my patch as a reference. Here is some information on what I am running: Data-Validate-IP-0.12 5.8.8 Linux 2.6.18-194.17.4.el5 Thanks, Milan Milan Matlak Linux Dist.
