    SubjectPossible /etc/hosts parsing bug?
    Date

    I have found something that may be a small parsing bug, but may
    also be within the specs of its functionality... In my hosts file
    I had a few entries:

    172.16.2.1 Atomic.shocking.com
    172.16.2.2 Nuclear.shocking.com
    172.16.2.3 Fusion.shocking.com

    In an effort to line everything up and make it look pretty I modified the
    previous lines to the following:

    172.016.002.001 Atomic.shocking.com
    172.016.002.002 Nuclear.shocking.com
    172.016.002.003 Fusion.shocking.com

    Numerically, these have the same values, but when I tried to ping fusion,
    the IP that it was using was 172.14.2.3. When the extra '0's were deleted
    ping worked fine. Is this within the operating specs? Just curious,
