Dru has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Monks,

My apologies if this has already been answered. I've searched using Super Search, but I don't think I'm giving it what it wants.

What I thought would turn out to be a fairly easy match, has got me pulling my hair out. As you can see from the below, I'm trying to match any address between 192.168.1.x - 192.168.99.x, but the only three it will match is:
192.168.1.50 192.168.6.50 192.168.8.50
Even if I change the range to 20-99.
use warnings; use strict; while (<DATA>){ print "$_\n" if /192\.168\.[1-99]\.\d+/g; } __DATA__ 192.168.1.50 192.168.6.50 192.168.8.50 192.168.28.50 192.168.58.50 192.168.101.50 192.168.201.50
Thanks,
Dru
