This was fun to figure out and I learned a lot.  I am sure there might be a better way to do this, but seems to work.

Here is my test:
$ ./convert.sh 172.16.200.123/0xffffff00
Here is the conversion
255.255.255.0

Here is the code I used:
#!/bin/bash
ARG1=`echo $1 | cut -d/ -f2 | tr '[:lower:]' '[:upper:]'`
pair=($(echo $ARG1|sed  's/\(..\)/\1 /g'))

p1="$(echo -e "ibase=16; ${pair[1]}" | bc)" 
p2="$(echo -e "ibase=16; ${pair[2]}" | bc)"
p3="$(echo -e "ibase=16; ${pair[3]}" | bc)"
p4="$(echo -e "ibase=16; ${pair[4]}" | bc)"

echo "Here is the conversion"
echo $p1\.$p2\.$p3\.$p4

Hi linuxperson,

I'm not totally clear on the bottom line of your question, but if you want to take this as input:
    172.16.200.123/0xffffff00
and convert it to this:
    255.255.255.0
(as savone seems to think), then you could do it in Perl like this:
    echo "172.16.200.123/0xffffff00" | perl -ne '/0x(.+)/; map{push @dec, hex} unpack "(A2)*",$1; print join(".",@dec)'

But if you really want a shell solution, then savone's might be the way to go.
