A class for storing an AS number used by protocols such as BGP.
This class can be used to store an AS number that can be either 16 or 32 bits. Originally, the AS numbers were defined as 16-bit unsigned numbers. Later the "extended" AS numbers were introduced, which are unsigned 32-bit numbers. Conventional terminology refers to the 32-bit version as 4-byte AS numbers rather than 32-bit AS numbers, so we'll try and stick with that where it makes sense.
2-byte numbers are expanded to 32-bits by extending them with 0's in front. 4-byte numbers are represented in a 2-byte AS path, by a special 16-bit value, AS_TRAN, which will be allocated by IANA. Together with any AsPath containing AS_TRAN, we will always see a AS4_PATH attribute which contains the full 32-bit representation of the path. So there is no loss of information.
The internal representation of an AsNum is 32-bit in host order.
The canonical string form of a 4-byte AS number is <high>.<low>, so decimal 65536 ends up being printed as "1.0".

|AsNum::AsNum||(||const uint8_t *||d,|
construct from a 2-byte buffer in memory or a 4 byte buffer (in net byte order).
The 4byte parameter is mostly to distinguish this from the 2-byte constructor above.
