Accepted, but...
the string comparison is not accurate for IP addresses. Originally I was going to do a cascade comparison on each octet, but lost the will to live and suggested Net::IPAddress instead. Inline code can be messy, but I accept your argument about the hard-coded reference.

    I know. I didn't say anything because A) your suggestion to use Net::IPAddress was better than what I was going to suggest:

    unpack "N", pack "C*", split /\./, $ip_address;
    and B) I was heading out the door. :-)
