Says tachyon:

Of course if you patched the module with XS and your C code there would be :-)
Not really. The C program is a complete program that solves this one specific problem. There's nowhere in the Net::CIDR interface to 'patch'; the module doesn't do what this program does, and this program doesn't implement any of the functions that Net::CIDR does.

Even if I did put it in, there wouldn't be any benefit. At present, you could compile my program and then use:

#!/usr/bin/perl system("mjd-merge-blocks inputfile > outputfile");
Then you could call it a "Perl solution", but it wouldn't really be one. Hacking my code into Net::CIDR wouldn't be a "Perl solution" either.
