in reply to Broadcast address: a binary anding question

CPAN is, as ever, your friend. I would use the Net::IPv4Addr module. From the synopsis:

use Net::IPv4Addr qw( :all ); my ($broadcast) = ipv4_broadcast($ip_str, $msk_str);

Where $ip_str and $msk_str in this case (assuming you have (0..255) in your arrays) would be:

$ip_str = join('.', @ip); $msk_str = join('.', @netmask);

If you want to know how your problem is solved in the module, then download it and use the source luke.

[Corion]: Hi jkva!
[Corion]: karlgoethevier: Oooh, that sounds interesting! ;)
[karlgoethebier]: btw, good morning
[Happy-the-monk]: karlgoethebier: have fun! Did some archery at the age of 14 or so.
[karlgoethebier]: Corion: It is, indeed.
[Happy-the-monk]: even more OT: received the complete series of Robin Hood/Robin of Sherwood 1984 on used dvds this morning :)
[Happy-the-monk]: (purely coincidental)
[jkva]: Corion Hey there :)
