The problem only(*) occurs with 32-bit perls:

C:\test>type CIDRtest.pl #! perl -slw use strict; use integer; for my $n ( 0 .. 31 ) { my $addr = (1 << $n) + 1; printf "\r%u", $addr; my $nbits = 32; while( 1 ) { my $bit = ( $addr & 0x80000000 ) >> 31; die "$addr -> $bit" if $bit != 0 and $bit != 1; $addr <<= 1; last unless --$nbits; } } C:\test>CIDRtest.pl 2147483649 C:\test>\perl32\bin\perl.exe CIDRtest.pl -2147483648 -> -1 at CIDRtest.pl line 11. 2

(*Or 64-bit perls, but with much higher numbers.)

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    Aaargh ... and hadn't even noticed that my laptop's system perl has 64 bit ints even though it's i686 so I'd used it for testingwhat I thought was a 32 bit system m(

    Many thanks everybody, that was the whack I needed!
