IPv4 addresses are 32-bit; they are often handled as integer values (uint32_t).

Perl provides pack and unpack for working with rigid-format data. For example:

my $ip = ""; my @ip = split /\./, $ip; my $p = pack "C4", @ip; # packed as 4-octet thing my $x = unpack "N", $p; # ip as unsigned int # work on integer values, e.g. masking is just ($x & $y) $p = pack "N", $x; # re-pack the value my $bitvec = unpack "B32", $p; my $quad = join q(.), unpack "C4", $p; print "as bitvector: $bitvec\n"; print "as dotted quad: $quad\n";

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • 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).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
