[arin-tech-discuss] ARIN API Question

It's a pain.  There's an API call that does it, but only if you've got 
under 255 reassignments.

What we do is:

1) Request a reassignment report (/rest/report/reassignment/)
2) Wait for the report to complete
3) Download the report (/rest/ticket/)
4) Convert the XLS document returned to a CSV (xls2csv works okay)
5) Parse the CSV for all the reassignments within the subnet range

It seems awful, but it's been the only reliable way of doing it that 
I've found.

Re: /children.  Note the message at the top: 'This list contains more 
than 256 records. Additional records are not shown.'.  This restriction 
makes it pretty much useless.
