The attribute is always "unknown class". It no longer conveys

applications that parse Nmap XML, though (I checked and Zenmap will need
a small patch). So this is a warning that I plan to remove the
attribute, and a request for anyone to correct me if I'm off base in
But the real question is: would the Perl Nmap::Parser and/or
Nmap::Scanner need to be patched themselves, or would just the scripts
need to be edited, or would it all just behave like mine above?
I tried Nmap::Parser, and it reads an input file just fine. It only
crashes if you try to call the tcpsequence_class method.
I tried Nmap::Scanner on the same input file, but it seemed like the
host list returned by get_host_list was empty. I don't know Perl too
well, so it could be my fault.
