in thread ip range for config files

The thing about 192.168.0.1 - 192.168.0.100 is that it is impossible to represent that exact range in one net block. You have to use several netblocks of varying sizes to do it. So no, Net::Netmask will not let you do it all in one block because its impossible.

It does, however, give you the range2cidrlist method that will break that range into a series of valid netblocks for you.

    You know, I'll bet everyone using these modules wants the CIDR format...actually I don't. I want an array of individual IP addresses back from a CIDR format (or a IP-Range format)

    I want to give the user an option to specify a range of IP addresses in their favorite format and then get the array back...

    I am very likely very CONFUSED...

    Say I have a config file of hosts/devices to ping...

    # Ping me list
    host1; 192.168.0.1-192.168.0.10; 10.0.0.0/8; host2

    I am looking for a proper format to allow. right now, you have to list 1 IP or hostname on EACH line ;-(
