Re: Need a better way to break out a range of addresses...

in reply to Need a better way to break out a range of addresses...

I would probably use split or a regex to grab the IP address string (and the last octet range) from each line of the file. Then I would step from the beginning of the range to the end of the range, constructing each IP address and writing it out as I went.

So, you'll want to do the following things:

  • Open the file (and do something sensible if that fails)
  • process each line of the file in some sort of loop (maybe a while)
  • extract the IP address substring from each line
  • determine if the IP address is a singleton or a range
  • if it is a singleton, write it out to your file or whatever
  • if it is a range, step through from the start to the end part of the last octet, constructing a series of singleton IP addresses and writing them out.

Show us what you have tried, and we'll be glad to help!
