Free Tool: Subnet Calculator

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

In my opinion there are very few really good books dealing with cgi. Perhaps it is because there is really not a lot to learn!

This books however does cover other topics including security, server side includes and image maps which a cgi programmer would do well to know about.

If you are not so worried about cgi itself then the Llama book on perl is the one to go for.
