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 an 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.
