The pg_inet extension adds support for Sequel to handle PostgreSQL's inet and cidr types using ruby's IPAddr class.
This extension integrates with Sequel's native postgres and jdbc/postgresql adapters, so that when inet/cidr fields are retrieved, they are returned as IPAddr instances.
To use this extension, load it into your database:
This extension integrates with the pg_array extension. If you plan to use the inet or cidr types, load the pg_array extension before the pg_inet extension:
DB.extension :pg_array, :pg_inet
This extension does not add special support for the macaddr type. Ruby doesn't have a stdlib class that represents mac addresses, so these will still be returned as strings. The exception to this is that the pg_array extension integration will recognize macaddr types return them as arrays of strings.
See the schema modification guide for details on using inet/cidr columns in CREATE/ALTER TABLE statements.
