Geoip is a c library that enables the user to find the country that any ip address or hostname originates from. it uses a file based database.

this database simply contains ip blocks as keys, and countries as values and it should be more complete and accurate than using reverse dns lookups.

this package contains the shared library.

Inferior-minded people misuse such tools to determine which language to serve the users. That idea will NEVER work, because you can NEVER be sure what language a user understands based on IP. Should never have been let out in the open.
