I'm sure you'll get a lot of comments on this one ;-)

Here's my one-liner take:

while read line; do echo -n "${line}/32,"; done < hostlist | sed 's/\,$//'

or to be a bit more understandable:

while read line; do
  echo -n "${line}/32,"
done < hostlist | sed 's/\,$//'

the little sed part just removes the last comma from the list.

HTH,

Randy
