IP is an immutable value object for (both version 4 and 6) IP addresses. Several helper methods are provided for ranges, broadcast and network addresses, subnet masks, whether an IP is a certain type (defined by RFC's), etc.
Internally, the library converts IP addresses to a binary sequence for easy mathematical operations and consistency. You can choose to work with IPv6 addresses as 16-byte binary sequences, IPv4 addresses as 4-byte binary sequences, or work with both interchangeably by representing IPv4 addresses as 16-byte binary sequences (which is recommended for most applications).
