Further IP Validation information

After yesterday's posting on one way (of many) to validate an IPv4 address, I have some more information for those interested.

I had posted a question at one point to Perl forum, regarding an issue I was having. One of the more knowledgeable users over there (he goes by Miller), enlightened me as to a CPAN module that does the same thing without re-inventing the wheel. Please don't think I regret writing my script. On the contrary, I am very happy I did as I learned a couple of lessons in doing so.

Anywho, the module mentioned above actually validates IP addresses for you to check validity just as my script from yesterday does, it just does so slightly differently.

I thank Miller for his gracious input and the link to the CPAN module!!
