See e.g. http://steve-parker.org/code/c/netmask.c

This code outputs that as

C:\tmp\cc>netmask 192.168.0.6/255.255.255.0
IP        = 192.168.000.006
Mask      = 255.255.255.000 (ffffff00) - aka /24
Network   = 192.168.000.000
Broadcast = 192.168.000.255

and

C:\tmp\cc>netmask 10.254.20.6/255.255.254.0
IP        = 010.254.020.006
Mask      = 255.255.254.000 (fffffe00) - aka /23
Network   = 010.254.020.000
Broadcast = 010.254.021.255

respectively.
