I thought it was neat how this helped me understand that IPv4 addresses are represented in a in_addr_t using just 4 bytes.

    Yup, IPv4 addresses are 32 bit unsigned integers which makes them very convenient to work with. That‘s also what that 50.60.70.80 syntax is about: Those are just the four individual bytes that make up the 32bit integer, separated by a period.

This is a nice tool, especially because nowadays I'm surprised by how many people don't seem to know what a debugger is...

Looks nice, but would benefit from longer examples (10+ lines) to really get a feel for things.
