Subject: Documentation doesn't say what will be returned for private IP addresses
Download (untitled) / with headers

The documentation doesn't say what you'll get back from get_country_short() and get_country_long() if you pass a private IP address. It appears to be '-', but it would be good if you documented that. Also, what do you get back from these methods if you pass an IP address not covered by the data file?
You will get "-" for the unassigned or private IP address. We will update it in the documentation.
