IPSEC_GOODMASK(3)					     Library Functions Manual						 IPSEC_GOODMASK(3)

NAME
ipsec_goodmask, ipsec_masktobits, ipsec_bitstomask - check if Internet subnet mask is valid, convert Internet subnet mask to bit count, convert bit count to Internet subnet mask SYNOPSIS
#include <libreswan.h> int goodmask(struct in_addr mask); int masktobits(struct in_addr mask); struct in_addr bitstomask(int n); DESCRIPTION
These functions are obsolete; see ipsec_masktocount(3) for a partial replacement. Goodmask reports whether the subnet mask is a valid one, i.e. consists of a (possibly empty) sequence of 1s followed by a (possibly empty) sequence of 0s. Masktobits takes a (valid) subnet mask and returns the number of 1 bits in it. Bitstomask reverses this, returning the subnet mask corresponding to bit count n. All masks are in network byte order. SEE ALSO
inet(3), ipsec_atosubnet(3) DIAGNOSTICS
Masktobits returns -1 for an invalid mask. Bitstomask returns an all-zeros mask for a negative or out-of-range n. HISTORY
Written for the FreeS/WAN project by Henry Spencer. BUGS
The error-reporting convention of bitstomask is less than ideal; zero is sometimes a legitimate mask. 11 June 2001 IPSEC_GOODMASK(3)
