Re: Feature request: Accept decimal notation for target host

Even though I don't personally believe this is a good idea (very limited
use, confusion, etc.), it would solve the oft-repeated question of how to
scan sequential blocks of addresses that don't line up on round byte
boundaries. For example,

nmap 192.168.10.100-255 192.168.11.0-99

could be written as

nmap 3232238180-3232238435

although I can't believe anyone would care enough to do it this way.

Nmap accepts 4-tuple and Hex notation for targets, why not decimal?

e.g.

$ ping 127.0.0.1
$ ping 0x7f000001
$ ping 2130706433
