network_of

Function

network_of the network of an IP

Synopsis

network_of(val: ip [, mask: net|int|uint]) -> net

Description

The network_of function returns the network of the IP address given by val as determined by the optional mask. If mask is an integer rather than a net, it is presumed to be a network prefix of the indicated length. If mask is ommited, then a class A (8 bit), B (16 bit), or C (24 bit) network is inferred from val, which in this case, must be an IPv4 address.

Examples

Compute the network address of an IP given a network mask argument:

echo '10.1.2.129' | zq -z 'yield network_of(this, 255.255.255.128/25)' -

=>

10.1.2.128/25

Compute the network address of an IP given an integer prefix argument:

echo '10.1.2.129' | zq -z 'yield network_of(this, 25)' -

=>

10.1.2.128/25

Compute the network address implied by IP classful addressing:

echo '10.1.2.129' | zq -z 'yield network_of(this)' -

=>

10.0.0.0/8

The network of a value that is not an IP is an error:

echo 1 | zq -z 'yield network_of(this)' -

=>

error("network_of: not an IP")
