This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow stackage.org to host generated Haddocks.

Hath is a Haskell program for working with network blocks in CIDR notation. When dealing with blocks of network addresses, there are a few things that one usually wants to do with them:

  • Create a regular expression matching the CIDR block(s). This is because grep will throw up if you feed it CIDR.

  • Combine small blocks into larger ones. For example, if you have two consecutive /24s, they might combine into a larger /23.

  • View the result of block combination in a useful way.

  • List them.

Hath has several modes to perform these functions:

Regexed
This computes a (Perl-compatible) regular expression matching the input CIDR blocks. It's the default mode of operation.
Reduced
This combines small blocks into larger ones where possible, and eliminates redundant blocks. The output should be equivalent to the input, though.
Duped
Shows only the blocks that would be removed by reduce; that is, it shows the ones that would get combined into larger blocks or are simply redundant.
Diffed
Shows what would change if you used reduce. Uses diff-like notation.
Listed
List the IP addresses contained within the given CIDRs.

Examples:

Compute a (Perl-compatible) regular expression matching the input CIDR blocks. It's the default mode of operation.

$ echo "10.0.0.0/29 10.0.0.8/29" | hath
((10).(0).(0).(15|14|13|12|11|10|9|8|7|6|5|4|3|2|1|0))

Combine two /24s into a /23:

$ echo "10.0.0.0/24 10.0.1.0/24" | hath reduced
10.0.0.0/23

List the addresses in 192.168.0.240/29:

$ echo 192.168.0.240/29 | hath listed
192.168.0.240
192.168.0.241
192.168.0.242
192.168.0.243
192.168.0.244
192.168.0.245
192.168.0.246
192.168.0.247

The command-line syntax and complete set of options are documented in the man page.
