I learned a new command today

Let's make it simple, it's pretty self-explanatory. Since I'm a netadmin, every little thing can help, and this is no exception. It should make my life MUCH easier.

sudo apt-get install sipcalc


And then:

mtrudel@icarus:~$ sipcalc 10.10.0.0/21
-[ipv4 : 10.10.0.0/21] - 0

[CIDR]

Ah, thanks. Indeed useful to have the Gnome equivalent handy instead of opening a command window just for that.
