Description:

What would be the most efficient way to convert an IP address from hexadecimal to dotted quad notation?
E.g. from 7F000001 to 127.0.0.1

I came up with:

$ip = '7F000001'; use Socket; inet_ntoa( pack( "N", hex( $ip ) ) )

perhaps

join '.', unpack "C*", pack "H*", $ip;

Here's one way, using Regexp::Common, although it's unlikely to be the most efficient:

use Regexp::Common; $ip =~ s( ^$RE{net}{IPv4}{hex}{-sep=>''}{-keep}$ ){ join '.', map { hex } $2, $3, $4, $5 }xe;

You could also do it as follows, although it's still probably not as fast as the pack/unpack method:

join '.', map { hex } $ip =~ /../g;
