Since this module required to compile geoip c library during the installtion, due to the difficulty of compilifa this c library on windows, currenlty, this module can not be used on windows, yet.
node-geoip maybe your best candicate.
As up to the version 0.4.7 (commit 22dadd98646f75318412b54b3de90cc079d34b1d), there will be some memory leak when new a object from GeoIP class.
Here is the report, I'll update it frequently.
Fortunately, the number of leaked bytes is not huge, and you wont new a object very offen.
If you are willing to fix this but, please fork this project.
Corrently, this package supports the most common databases from MaxMind.
But, it still a lot of special databases out there.
Since I am not a user of any product/service of maxmind, if you require this pacakge to support special db, please make sure you can delivery the testing db and the ip address/domain that can be used to against the db.
[sudo] npm install geoip [-g]
See usage doc.
