Hi, I'm getting issues with small ipv6 netmasks not working correctly. e.g. use Net::Subnet; @subnets=("2000::/3"); my $classifier = subnet_classifier(@subnets); $x = $classifier->('2fff:01ff:0:c0::25:129'); print $x; This will not match, although 2000::/3 goes from 2000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000 - 3fff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff This is true for all netmasks < 24 e.g @subnets=("2000::/23"); my $classifier = subnet_classifier(@subnets); $x = $classifier->('2000:0100::1'); print $x; This will not match although 2000::/23 goes from 2000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000 - 2000:01ff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff I'm running perl 5.16.0 latest version of Net::Subnet (1.02) Thanks, Wim

The new release (1.03) probably fixes this issue, although in a slightly different way. I hadn't noticed that there were RT tickets until someone told me AFTER I released 1.03. There was a problem with IPv6 netmasks that are not a multiple of 8.
