prips — print the IP addresses in a given range
[-f format] [-i incr]
prips [-c] [-d delim] [-e exclude] [-f format] [-i incr] CIDR-block
The prips tool can be used to print all of the IP addresses in a given range. It can enhance tools that only work on one host at a time, e.g. whois(1).
The prips tool accepts the following command-line options:
Print the range in CIDR notation.
Set the delimiter to the character with ASCII code delim where 0 <= delim <= 255.
Exclude ranges from the output.
Set the format of addresses (hex, dec, or dot).
Show summary of options.
Set the increment to ’x’.
The prips tool’s operation is not influenced by any environment variables.
The prips tool’s operation is not influenced by any files.
Display all the addresses in a reserved subnet:
prips 192.168.32.0 192.168.32.255
The same, using CIDR notation:
Display only the usable addresses in a class A reserved subnet using a space instead of a newline for a delimiter:
prips -d 32 10.0.0.1 10.255.255.255
Display every fourth address in a weird block:
prips -i 4 192.168.32.7 192.168.33.5
Determine the smallest CIDR block containing two addresses:
prips -c 192.168.32.5 192.168.32.11
The prips utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
No standards were harmed in the writing of the prips tool.
The prips tool was originally written by Daniel Kelly and later adopted by Peter Pentchev. This manual page was originally written by Juan Alvarez for the Debian GNU/Linux system and later added to the prips distribution and converted to mdoc format by Peter Pentchev.
Please report any bugs in the prips tool to its current maintainer, Peter Pentchev.
