 I need to write a code in C language where my IP address and my mask is used as input(from command prompt) and output is rang of IP addresses of network where I belong.

    Example:  

WHAT IS YOUR IP ADDRESS: 192.168.0.6

WHAT IS YOUR MASK: 255.255.255.0

YOU ARE PART OF NETWORK

192.168.0.1-192.168.0.254

192.168.0.0/24

 

Example 2:  

WHAT IS YOUR IP ADDRESS: 10.254.20.6

WHAT IS YOUR MASK: 255.255.254.0

YOU ARE PART OF NETWORK

10.254.20.1-10.254.21.254

10.254.20.0/23

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.
