SYNOPSIS

cidr [-v]
cidr <ipaddress/prefix> [-H]
cidr <-b|-q|-h|-d> <ipaddress> <-b|-q|-h|-d|-p> <mask|prefix> [-H]
 

DESCRIPTION

cidr is a utility for determining the network address and broadcast address for a CIDR subnet. It takes as input an ip address and netmask in binary, dotted-quad, hexadecimal, decimal or prefix formats. It outputs the network address, broadcast address, and a count (and optionally a list) of valid host addresses for the corresponding subnet.

OPTIONS

-v print version information
-b <ipaddress|mask>
  IP address or mask as a binary number
-q <ipaddress|mask>
  ip address or mask as a dotted-quad
-h <ipaddress|mask>
  ip address or mask as a hexadecimal number
-d <ipaddress|mask>
  ip address or mask as a decimal number
-p <prefix>
  netmask as a CIDR prefix (decimal integer 1-32)
-H print a list of valid host addresses
ipaddress
  ip address in the form specified by option -b, -q, -h, or -d
mask netmask in the form specified by option -b, -q, -h, or -d
prefix netmask as a CIDR prefix (decimal integer 1-32)

EXAMPLES

cidr 192.168.14.56/27

cidr 192.168.14.56/27 -H

Note: The above forms only support dotted-quad ip address and prefix netmask.

cidr -q 192.168.14.56 -h ffffff00

cidr -q 192.168.14.56 -q 255.255.255.0 -H

cidr -h 0xfe12abcf -b 11111111111111111111111100000000

cidr -d 2929937821 -p 32

cidr -b 11110000101010100101010111001100 -p 24 -H
