=head1 METHODS

=head2 new

This initiates the module.

No arguments are taken and this will always succeed.

    my $sorter=$sorter=Net::Connection::Sort::host_l->new;

=cut

sub new{
	my %args;
	if(defined($_[1])){
		%args= %{$_[1]};
	};


	my $self = {
				};
    bless $self;

	return $self;
}

=head2 sort

This sorts the array of Net::Connection objects.

One object is taken and that is a array of objects.

    @objects=$sorter->sorter( \@objects );
    
    print Dumper( \@objects );

=cut

sub sorter{
	my $self=$_[0];
	my @objects;
	if (
		defined( $_[1] ) &&
		( ref($_[1]) eq 'ARRAY' )
		){
		@objects=@{ $_[1] };
	}else{
		die 'The passed item is either not a array or undefined';
	}

	@objects=sort  {
		&helper( $a->local_host ) <=>  &helper( $b->local_host )
	} @objects;

	return @objects;
}

=head2 helper

This is a internal function.

=cut

sub helper{
        if (
			( !defined($_[0]) ) ||
			( $_[0] eq '*' ) ||
			( $_[0] =~ /[g-zG-Z]/ )
			){
			return 0;
        }
        my $host=eval { Net::IP->new( $_[0] )->intip} ;
        if (!defined( $host )){
			return 0;
        }
        return $host;
}
