What is the simplest/fastest Python program to determine how many
IP addresses sum up to 666?

The simplest/fastest enumerator?

The simplest/fastest that determines which ones of them are home pages?

BTW, www.churchofsatan.org is 216.168.224.70
That adds up to 666 + 12

Are they hedging their bets?

This seems to work although it could be made more efficient or elegant.
Also, the failed gethostbyaddr() calls take forever.

from socket import gethostbyaddr, herror

for a in xrange(256):
if a < 666-255*3:
continue
for b in xrange(256):
if a+b < 666-255*2:
continue
for c in xrange(256):
if a+b+c < 666-255:
continue
for d in xrange(256):
if a + b + c + d == 666:
ip_address = "%d.%d.%d.%d" % (a, b, c, d)
try:
hostname, aliaslist, ipaddrlist =
gethostbyaddr(ip_address)
except herror:
hostname = "NONE"
print hostname, ip_address
break

I'm not sure what you meant to do, but note that 'a < 666-255*3' is
false for all values of 'a' generated by the xrange() call. Removing
that test would make the code more efficient. Hard to say if it would
make it more elegant

Certainly, it can be done more efficient:

for a in xrange(256):
for b in xrange(max(0, (666-255*2)-a), 256):
for c in xrange(max(0, (666-255)-a-b), min(666-a-b+1, 256)):
d = 666-a-b-c
...

I've checked these IPs with ip2cc (which can miss entries registered
last month): there are 2907248 "evil" addresses, most of them (1568430)
in USA. Too many to resolve.

Comrade, why perl here?
Are you afraid python?

And here was me just thinking that the burn would result from the
inevitable flames. Newsgroups really re a continual surprise.

Huh? Alt.prophecies.nostradamus is ALL ABOUT PERL!

And at the end of the age
There shall be a mysterious language
Filled with punctuation
It will connect many things.

I asked you to stop calling me python.

Feel free to write a python version if you want to.
