in reply to pinger - ping a range of hosts

I only have 2 comments really :)
  • Your regexp for IP's is flawed, I can enter 999.999.999.999, which obviously isn't a real IP.
    I found something similar to this in the Ram book
    Disclaimer: I realize this may not be the most efficent regex, but it does work, right?
  • If you're on a UNIX machine, you could always use nmap

    The errata for Perl Cookbook at O'Reilly has a modified ip validation re. It is also in ping for ppt by me.

    m{ ^ ( \d | [01]?\d\d | 2[0-4]\d | 25[0-5] ) \. ( \d | [01]?\d\d | 2[0-4]\d | 25[0-5] ) \. ( \d | [01]?\d\d | 2[0-4]\d | 25[0-5] ) \. ( \d | [01]?\d\d | 2[0-4]\d | 25[0-5] ) $ # from the Perl Cookbook, Reci +pe 6.23, }xo # pages 218-9, as fixed in the + 01/00 reprint

    Apply yourself to new problems without preparation, develop confidence in your ability to to meet situations as they arrise.

      ١.٢.٣.٤ is not a valid IP, it matches the regex though :)
