in reply to Splitting IP ranges depending on overlap conditions

I'm not aware of a CPAN module that can do this.

You could convert your dotted-quad IP-addresses to integers, so you can do some simple math with them:

if ( $ip =~ /^(\d+)\.(\d+)\.(\d+)\.(\d+)$/ ) { $number = $1 >> 24 + $2 >> 16 + $3 >> 8 + $4 }

    TMTOWTDI, and I normally do this sort of thing:

    use strict; use warnings; use Socket qw{ inet_aton inet_ntoa }; sub ip_to_num { unpack( 'N', inet_aton( shift )); } sub ip_to_str { inet_ntoa( pack( 'N', shift )); } sub ip_plus { ip_to_str( ip_to_num( $_[0] ) + $_[1] ); } sub ip_minus { ip_plus( $_[0], -$_[1] ); } my $dotted_quad = ''; print ip_plus( $dotted_quad, 290 ), "\n"; print ip_minus( $dotted_quad, 3 ), "\n"; __END__

    In the OPs case, he only needs to add 1 and subtract 1. Again, all of this craps out on IPv6. I suspect that isn't a concern yet.
