Actually I wrote it as map first and, of course, it didn't work because s// doesn't return the modified string. Breaking the unwritten rule of grep seemed slicker than:

map {s/.../.../ge; $_}
which still hides side-effects inside map or:
map {(my $x= $_)=~s/.../.../ge; $x}
which just, well, isn't slick. :)

[moritz]: seems there's a size limit for hostenum, and the error message just sucks
[vrk]: None, other than the location of the error: auto/NetAddr/IP/ _splitref.al
[vrk]: Aha, there's a reference to "bug report 82719" in NetAddr/IP.pm's sub _splitref.
[moritz]: wow, that's their idea of an "improved error message"
[moritz]: how about "This network is too large to enumerate all host addresses." or so?
[vrk]: Well, there's a call to notcontiguous() before the error, whose description is "counts the bit positions remaining in the mask when the rightmost '0's are removed"
[vrk]: Clear as mud!
