Sounds fair to me, so I tried it - am I correct in using "L" instead of "N" in the unpack?

my @range = map { unpack "L", pack "C4", split /\./ } qw( 10.1 +.0.0); print "@range\n"; # the numbers themselves print $range[1]-$range[0]+1, "\n"; # how many addresses for ($range[0]..$range[1]) { print join(".", unpack "C4", pack "N", $_), "\n"; }

When i do the above it reverses the input to -> I can fix this up I guess, but why is it doing that?

Am I using the wrong unpack data type?
