>> Thank you, kind sir. This is exactly what I was looking for:
>> [may '96 figures]
>> Grand Total (Allocated and Assigned Combined)
>> Class A - 127
> 128 <--
Bit pattern 0xxxxxxx Class A (0-127)
Bit pattern 10xxxxxx Class B (128-191)
Bit pattern 110xxxxx Class C (192-223)
Bit pattern 1110xxxx Class D (224-239)
I give up. Where did I go wrong that I think net 128.x.y.z is in the
old style class B range?
>> Class B - 10150
>> Class C - 764202
You did not go wrong, look at the way Paul did the distribution.
For that matter, look at you supplied bit patterns.
0 to 127 is how many? 128!!
(side note... Net zero will be harder to reclaim than net 127)
