        Net::Domain::TLD - Work with TLD names


        use Net::Domain::TLD qw(tlds tld_exists);
        my @ccTLDs = tlds('cc');
        print "TLD ok\n" if tld_exists('ac','cc');


        The purpose of this module is to provide user with current list of 
        available top level domain names including new ICANN additions and ccTLDs
        Currently TLD definitions have been acquired from the following sources:


        Each public function/method is described here.
        These are how you should interact with this module.


        This routine returns the tlds requested.
        my @all_tlds = tlds; #array of tlds
        my $all_tlds = tlds; #hashref of tlds and their descriptions
        my @cc_tlds = tlds('cc'); #array of just 'cc' type tlds
        my $cc_tlds = tlds('cc'); #hashref of just 'cc' type tlds and their descriptions
        Valid types are:
                cc                 - country code domains
                gtld_open          - generic domains that anyone can register
                gtld_restricted    - generic restricted registration domains
                new_open           - recently added generic domains
                new_restricted     - new restricted registration domains


        This routine returns true if the given domain exists and false otherwise.
        die "no such domain" unless tld_exists($tld); #call without tld type 
        die "no such domain" unless tld_exists($tld, 'new_open'); #call with tld type
