new bug fix release of prtraceroute

Hi all,

After getting tired of the requests why prtraceroute didn't do what people
hoped it should do, I fixed some of the bugs... (and found some new ones).

It's highly recommended to upgrade since this release also does a better
job in skipping funny modern objects that caused the impression that the
whole Internet was in AS1800... and yes the software runs with perl5 now.

The code is available from:


If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to contact me again,

Kind regards,

New in 2.0 BETA 4

1.      new quad2int routine due to perl5 problems with bit shifts and
        some other minor perl5 fixes
        This version is supposed to work with perl5 now
        Note that the other PRIDE tools don't!!!!
2.      removed hardcoded SOCKSTREAM (for Solaris) and port value
3.      The tool skips now route objects with origin=AS0
4.      The tool skips now route objects with prefix 'x.x.x.x/0-5'
5.      The inet-rtr lookup works again (did nobody notice that the
        RIPE whois server doesn't support use of two '-T' options...)
6.      More robust code for interfacing with different versions of
        traceroute. Note that more robust doesn't mean good code,
        there is still some work left...
7.      The AS macro expansion didn't work with AS lists that contained
        other AS macros
8.      The policy evaluator had a bug which has been worked around.
