This was me :-) As the lookup for irt: has the nice capability to do a search towards the less specific blocks (by design!) it is easy to implement both an optional "local" irt: contact which is handled directly by (some of) our customers plus a catch-all on our allocated block. Just as I use the -m or -M flag to look at the more specifics in generla, it occurred to me that it might be equally useful to find out which more specific blocks assigned to our customers have been linked to a local irt: object. If this is hard to implement, or nobody else can see a use case for it, then we can forget about it :-) there are other ways to find this out, albeit less fancy :-) > regards > Denis Walker > Software Engineering Department > RIPE NCC Wilfried.
