NAME

       ipcalc - perform simple manipulation of IP addresses


SYNOPSIS

       ipcalc [OPTION]... <IP address>[/prefix] [netmask]



DESCRIPTION

       ipcalc  provides  a  simple way to calculate IP information for a host.
       The various options specify what information ipcalc should  display  on
       standard  out.  Multiple  options  may  be specified.  An IP address to
       operate on must always be specified.  Most operations  also  require  a
       netmask or a CIDR prefix as well.



OPTIONS

       -b, --broadcast
              Display  the  broadcast  address for the given IP address
              and netmask.


       -h, --hostname
              Display the hostname for the given IP address.


       -m, --netmask
              Calculate the  netmask  for  the  given  IP  address.  It
              assumes  that the IP address is in a complete class A, B,
              or C network. Many networks do not use the  default  net-
              masks,  in  which  case  an  inappropriate  value will be
              returned.


       -p, --prefix
              Show the prefix for the given mask/IP address.


       -n, --network
              Display the network address for the given IP address  and
              netmask.


       -s, --silent
              Don’t ever display error messages.
