Current Database Structure

I recently downloaded the entire hostip database for use in a mapping scenario. The project calls for the querying of hundreds of addresses at a time and that's why I opted for the local database.

I was surprised to find that each class A is given its own table. Why is that? Why isn't there simply an ip4 table with all the entries in that table? Clarification on this would be appreciated.

I suggest you use rsync:

What this means: run the command below and keep the files around and just sync them for updates instead of deleting them all after each run...
rsync -avz --progress rsync://hostip.info/hostip ./


If your on windows can you use my little pack...

The new database is in there and is more effective (on the rsync server)
