pmdev (PerlMonks Developers) are the folks who write code patches to implement bug fixes and enhancement for the benefit of the site's users. They are the alchemists who frequently create gold from base metals, and, on rare occasion, explosions which rock the monastery from tower to tower.

If you have an idea for an improvement to the site, you should post a writeup in the Perl Monks Discussion section — although you should discuss it in the Chatterbox first, just as a sanity check.

[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!
