make_re_ipv6(lower_case: bool = True, upper_case: bool = True) str[source]

Builds the regular expression catching IPv6 addresses.

Note this is not an exact match contrary to make_re_ipv6_strict, but the resulting automaton is significantly faster (and should be accurate enough for most of practical use cases).

  • lower_case (bool) – Pass False to discard lower case values.

  • upper_case (bool) – Pass False to discard upper case values.


The string storing the regular expression.
