No need to apologize. But yes, Perlmonks greatest feature is also it's greatest flaw. The fact that discussions are aloud is great, but just as stated (somewhere) in the StackOverflow FAQ, it diminishes a community. I am not saying end discussion on PM. I am saying nothing near that. What I am saying is that you must respect your fellow Monks. Also, you should not be allowed to post as an Anonymous Monk, as this is where most of the trolls are.

[vrk]: Aha, there's a reference to "bug report 82719" in NetAddr/IP.pm's sub _splitref.
[moritz]: wow, that's their idea of an "improved error message"
[moritz]: how about "This network is too large to enumerate all host addresses." or so?
[vrk]: Well, there's a call to notcontiguous() before the error, whose description is "counts the bit positions remaining in the mask when the rightmost '0's are removed"
[vrk]: Clear as mud!
