Bug#118151: ITP: libnet-netmask-perl -- parse, manipulate and lookup IP network blocks
I intend to package Net::Netmask, mainly because it is a dependency
of another ITP of mine: pop-before-smtp.
Net::Netmask parses and understands IPv4 CIDR blocks. It's built with an
object-oriented interface. Nearly all functions are methods that operate
on a Net::Netmask object.
There are methods that provide the nearly all bits of information about a
network block that you might want.
There are also functions to put a network block into a table and then
later lookup network blocks by IP address in that table. There are
functions to turn a IP address range into a list of CIDR blocks. There are
functions to turn a list of CIDR blocks into a list of IP addresses.
There is a function for sorting by text IP address.
