hwaddr 0.1.5

MAC address handling.


Hardware addresses with optional access to the producer database.


Optionally the database of producers to find out who produces a certain MAC address can be compiled in by enabling the database feature. Keep in mind this database adds up to the final binary around 7MB.

By default a database is provided and used, otherwise there are a couple options.

  • Setting HWADDR_DATABASE to a path will use the given path as database.
  • Setting HWADDR_DOWNLOAD to 1 is going to download it from IEEE website (this is really slow)
  • Setting HWADDR_DOWNLOAD to a valid URL is going to download it from there.
