Various ways using various mysteriously named functions from various mysteriously named packages, but it's easy enough with pure perl:

## Subs to convert dotted-quads to integers and vice versa sub dq2n{ unpack 'N', pack 'C4', split '\.', $_[ 0 ] };; sub n2dq{ join '.', unpack 'C4', pack 'N', $_[ 0 ] };; $start = dq2n( '' );; print n2dq( $_ ) for $start .. $start + 100;; ... ...

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
