So... if ($ENV{REMOTE_ADDR} eq '') { works as if ($ENV{REMOTE_ADDR} =~ /^180\.0?76\.0{0,2}6\.\d{1,3}$/) { what would a wild card for : if ($ENV{REMOTE_ADDR} eq '180.76.6.') { and if ($ENV{REMOTE_ADDR} eq '180.76.') { look like ?
Sorry if the question sounds so noobish, but the use of wildcards for this particular circumstance is beating up my brain. Technically all I am trying to do is put some code in to my program to keep out various IPs that are able to run my progs in the cgi-bin directory EVEN though their IP is totally banned in the .htaccess file. God only knows why the cgi-bin directory does not benefit from the same protection as all other directories under the .htaccess file as it leaves the progs open to abusive bandwidth consumption.

  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
